Title:
Calabi-Yau manifolds -- Geometry meets modern physics again

Abstract:
Calabi–Yau
manifolds are important in superstring theory. In the most conventional
superstring models, ten conjectural dimensions in string theory are supposed to
come as four of which we are aware, carrying some kind of fibration with fiber
dimension six. Essentially, Calabi–Yau manifolds are
shapes that satisfy the requirement of space for the six "unseen"
spatial dimensions of string theory, which may be smaller than our currently
observable lengths as they have not yet been detected. In this talk, we will
briefly go over some basics of Calabi-Yau manifolds and their relation with
modern physics.
