Aspects of String Geometry

 

 【Speaker】George Papadopoulos

 

 

Solutions have a significant role in the understanding and applications of physical theories. String theory is not an exception as many of its   properties, like dualities, branes and black holes can be understood by   investigating certain classical solutions. I shall review the methods used to   find such solutions.  Then I shall   develop the tools that can be used to describe their geometry. At the end of   the course I shall present some recent results that include a generalization   of the Lichnerowicz theorem and aspects of the classification of AdS   backgrounds in 10- and 11-dimensions. Some applications in string theory and   in AdS/CFT will also be described.
