"Curvature of almost Hermitian manifolds"

Let $(M, g, J)$ be a Riemannian manifold with $g$-orthogonal almost complex structure $J$. The Riemann curvature tensor satisfies certain identities involving the torsion $\nabla J$. We will focus on the Kahler case (when $\nabla J = 0$) and if time permits we will make some remarks about the general case.

This seminar will be held jointly online and in person:

"Teaching and learning roles in extremely large math courses"

Starting next year, the Math Department at UBC will teach extremely large consolidated courses of around 4000 undergraduate students each. In this talk, I'll describe how we've split the jack-of-all-trade "instructor" role into dedicated specialist roles, with the goal of improving the experience for everyone involved -- especially the students.
