"On generalized contact geometry"

Generalized contact manifolds are odd-dimensional analogues of generalized complex manifolds. In this talk, I will review aspects of generalized contact geometry. I also will discuss interactions between generalized contact geometry and other areas of mathematics. Examples of generalized contact manifolds will be provided. If time permits, I’ll explain the integration problem for holomorphic Jacobi manifolds.

"Q-systems and higher unitary idempotent completion for C*-algebras"

Q-systems were introduced by Longo to study finite index inclusions of infinite von Neumann factors. A Q-system is a unitary version of a Frobenius algebra object in a tensor category or a C* 2-category. By work of Müger, Q-systems give an axiomatization of the standard invariant of a finite index subfactor.
