Florin Dumitrescu


Super-facets of geometry


I will talk about various approaches to supermanifolds, a concept that generalizes the notion of manifold, motivated partly by physics, with an emphasis on examples. To build the theory, one usually mimics the classical constructions in geometry in a more or less formal manner, whose role is still to be understood. The talk does not require any specific background.
