DESCRIPTION:Geometers are interested in finding the "nicest" shape that a m
anifold can have. For surfaces\, this shape is usually the most symmetric\,
like the round sphere or the flat plane. In general there are different wa
ys of characterizing precisely what a "nice" manifold is. In this talk I wi
ll focus on one such class of manifolds\, namely "Ricci-flat Kahler" or "Ca
labi-Yau" manifolds. In the 1970's\, Yau proved that a compact Kahler manif
old with vanishing first Chern class is Calabi-Yau\, thereby proving a famo
us conjecture of Calabi. I will discuss extensions of Yauâ€™s theorem to the
non-compact world before discussing recent joint work with Hans-Joachim Hei
n (Muenster) classifying such manifolds modelled on a cone at infinity.
