In recent years, there has been growing interest in the study of (not necessarily Kähler) Hermitian manifolds: complex manifolds endowed with a compatible Riemannian metric. On a generic Hermitian manifold, the complex structure is not compatible with the Levi-Civita connection. Instead, one wishes to study the geometry of Hermitian connections - those compatible with both the complex structure and metric. In the 90's, Gauduchon introduced a "canonical" one dimensional subspace of Hermitian connections.

About Pure mathematics seminars

We present regular seminars on a range of pure mathematics interests. Students, staff and visitors to UQ are welcome to attend, and to suggest speakers and topics.

Seminars are usually held on Tuesdays from 2 to 3pm.

Talks comprise 45 minutes of speaking time plus five minutes for questions and discussion.

Information for speakers

Researchers in all pure mathematics fields attend our seminars, so please aim your presentation at a general mathematical audience.
