Part of the TCSS Symposium

I will give an introduction to Generalised Geometry: This fairly new extension of differential geometry allows us to generalise and unify different structures on smooth and complex manifolds. String theory is a primary motivation for the study of generalised metrics; using these, it is possible to describe massless string states in terms of a single geometric object. Delving further into the theory, we find a structure that encompasses the concepts of Poisson, symplectic and complex geometry. In my talk, I hope to give an impression of this wealth of possibilities which generalised geometry offers to both mathematics and theoretical physics.
