Shahbazi (Hamburg University) Title: Mathematical supergravity and its applications to differential geometry Abstract: I will discuss the recent developments in the mathematical theory of supergravity that lay the mathematical foundations of the universal bosonic sector of fourdimensional ungauged supergravity and its Killing spinor equations in a differentialgeometric framework. I will provide the necessary context and background. explaining the results pedagogically from scratch and highlighting several open mathematical problems which arise in the mathematical theory of supergravity, as well as some of its potential mathematical applications. Work in collaboration with Vicente Cortés and Calin Lazaroiu. 

Speaker:Title: Full SYZ Conjecture for del Pezzo Surfaces and Rational Elliptic SurfacesVenue: VirtualSpeaker: YuShen Lin (Boston University) Title: Full SYZ Conjecture for del Pezzo Surfaces and Rational Elliptic Surfaces Abstract: StromingerYauZaslow conjecture predicts the existence of special Lagrangian fibrations on CalabiYau manifolds. The conjecture inspires the development of mirror symmetry while the original conjecture has little progress. In this talk, I will confirm the conjecture for the complement of a smooth anticanonical divisor in del Pezzo surfaces. Moreover, I will also construct the dual torus fibration on its mirror. As a consequence, the special Lagrangian fibrations detect a nonstandard semiflat metric and some Ricciflat metrics that don’t obviously appear in the literature. This is based on a joint work with T. Collins and A. Jacob.
