Holomorphic symplectic geometry

The usual structures of symplectic geometry (symplectic, contact, Poisson manifolds) make sense in the holomorphic set-up; they turn out to be quite interesting on projective (or compact Kaehler) manifolds. I will describe why these structures appear naturally, review some of the results obtained recently and discuss the main open problems in the subject.

The Mathematics Colloquium is a series of monthly talks organized by the Department of Mathematics of IST, aiming to be a forum for the presentation of mathematical ideas or ideas about Mathematics. The Colloquium welcomes the participation of faculty, researchers and undergraduate or graduate students, of IST or other institutions, and is seen as an opportunity of bringing together and fostering the building up of ideas in an informal atmosphere.

Organizers: Conceição Amado, Lina Oliveira e Maria João Borges.
