# Research in Groups: Oid-Geometry

## Winter term 2015/2016

#### News

#### Programme

In this Research in Groups we will investigate various recent
developments in differential geometry starting from Lie algebroid theory
and including generalized geometries like Courant algebroids, generalized
complex structures, Dirac structures and their applications in symplectic
and Poisson geometry.

The RiG consists of a lecture part once a week during the semester where
the basic concepts will be explained. The second component is the block
seminar at the end of the semester where the participants will present
selected and more specialized topics in a one hour talk. Part of this
seminar talk will be the preparation of a small proceeding. The
proceedings will be collected, edited, and made available to the
participants shortly after the seminar.

#### Prerequisites

This Research in Groups addresses master students in mathematics or in
mathematical physics with a reasonable background in differential
geometry. Here the lecture notes on differential geometry from the last
semesters will be a good starting point.

#### Literature

The following list of references will be discussed in the first
meeting. More references will be given individually.

#### Dates

- Lecture: Tuesdays, 10 - 12, in the seminar room S1.101. Maybe we
change to the small room in our building...
- The seminar will take place at one or two days at the end of the
semester. The precise date will be announced.

#### Links

- On WueCampus there will be a
homepage
for this RiG. The WueCampus homepage will replace this site as soon as
it is activated.
