GTAW01 - General relativity: from geometry to amplitudes

The talk will be based on a joint work with Joel Fine. A definite connection on  a four manifold consists of a rank three Euclidean bundle with a metric connection whose curvature is maximally non-degenerate. I will explain why only the four sphere and the complex projective plane admit a definite connection with circle symmetry. The proof relies on properties of Hamiltonian S^1 actions on symplectic manifolds.
