# Pluriclosed flow and generalized Kahler geometry

Friday, December 5, 2014 -

3:00pm to 4:00pm

In joint work with G. Tian I introduced a natural evolution equation generalizing the Kahler Ricci flow to complex, non-Kahler manifolds. Moreover we showed that this equation preserves "generalized Kahler geometry." In this talk I will discuss further results on this flow in the generalized Kahler setting, including a sharp long time existence result for complex surfaces. These results lead to strong rigidity and classification results for generalized Kahler structures.
