Goal of the stay

The scope of the secondment has been to work with Prof. Giulia Sacca about an important class of manifolds, called Hyperkahler manifolds, their symplectic resolutions and about automorphism groups of Hyperkahler manifolds. An interesting aspect of Hyperkahler manifolds is that any family of them has a dense subset consisting of projective Hyperkahler manifolds, therefore in their study it's possible to apply both analytical and geometric methods.I worked on a examples of Hyperkahler manifold of dimension 6, recently discovered by O'Grady,
