Title: Symmetries of complex submanifolds of quaternionic manifolds

Abstract:
The generalized Feix construction (by A.Borowka, D.Calderbank)  identifies c-projective manifolds with type 1,1 curvature with the totally complex submanifolds of quaternionic manifolds. Our goal is to investigate the relationship between c-projective symmetries and quaternionic symmetries in this setting. We will show when a symmetry can be lifted to the quaternionic manifold. Moreover, we show that any maximally- or sub-maximally symmetric quaternionic manifold arises from the construction, for some c-projective manifold. In particular, a (sub-)maximally symmetric c-projective manifold can be used to construct a (sub-)maximally symmetric quaternionic manifold. This is a joint work with A. Borowka.

17th mathematical hike is planned on July 21st PDF Print

Extreme hike!

17th mathematical hike is planned on July 21st. Every participant will contribute to determine the path by a dice roll on predetermined crossroads. Thus it will be (not entirely) random walk all day (possibility to leave anytime), approximately 50 km.

Meet at the tram stop "Řečkovice" at 6am (so we have enough time).

Have a great summer,

Jana Bartoňová or Jonatan Kolegar, organizers, Jan Slovák,

Director of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics

 
16th mathematical hike - June 23rd 2018 PDF Print

Dear Friends of Mathematics and Hikes,

You are cordially invited to the 16th mathematical hike planned on June 23rd 2018.

Start at 9:17 at the train stop in Rožná. We go by train at 8:06 from the main train station in Brno (zones 100+101+ 6 additional).

We have planned a hike of 25 km going by the castle Pernštejn, over the hills and through some small villages. You can end the hike after 8.5 km at the train stop in Nedvědice (after visiting the castle). We plan to officially end at the train stop in Borač, return to Brno by train (zones 100+101+ 4 additional).

 

We wish you a successful exam period and a nice summer.

 

Jana Bartoňová and Jonatan Kolegar, organizers

15th mathematical hike - May 19th 2018 PDF Print

Dear Friends of Mathematics and Hikes,

You are hereby cordially invited to our mathematical hike planned on May 19th 2018.

Meet at ÚAN Zvonařka, bus stop number 42, at 7:50.

We go by bus to Velká Bíteš (the bus is not part of IDS JMK), then go through the valley of "Bílý potok". We go through a finite sequence of fords. The official ending is planned in Veverská Bítýška (27 km). Another possible endindg is at bus stop in Maršov (20 km ... 18 km through the valley of "Bílý potok" + 2 km additional). Return to Brno by bus (zones 100+101+ 2 additional from Veverská Bítýška/ 3 additional from Maršov).

We look forward to seeing you,

Jana Bartoňová and Jonatan Kolegar, organizers

Jan Slovák, Director of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
