Sebastian Goette:
Fibrewise Morse functions and higher torsion invariants
I will give a short overview about higher torsion invariants
for families of compact manifolds. Then I will sketch a generalisation of IgusaKlein torsion that has similar properties as BismutLott torsion. This is the first step in the comparison of the two invariants.

Oliver Fabert:
Floer theory and GromovWitten theory
In his proof of the Arnold conjecture about the number of fixed points of Hamiltonian symplectomorphisms, A. Floer developed a new infinitedimensional version of Morse homology. While the chain groups are generated by these fixed points, the differential counts pseudoholomorphic sections, which in turn provides a link to GromovWitten theory. In my talk I will introduce the basic concepts of Floer homology and its application to the Arnold conjecture. At the end I plan to sketch the main results of my recent paper 1206.1564, where I was able to complete the correspondence between rational GromovWitten theory and Floer theory of symplectomorphisms.

Introduction to VafaWitten Estimates
1984 Vafa and Witten developed a method to obtain upper bounds for the first eigenvalue of a DiracOperator on a compact manifold. I will explain the method and the related geometry in detail. We will see an example of an optimal VafaWitten bound on the projective space obtained by geometric arguments.
Furthermore, I will give a connection between the VafaWitten method and Linfinity variational problems.

Free fermions and taufunctions
The formalism of free fermions
used for construction of taufunctions of classical
integrable hierarchies is reviewed.
We give a derivation of
grouplike properties of the normally ordered exponents,
transformations between different normal orderings,
the bilinear identity and the generalized Wick's
theorem. We also consider various examples of taufunctions
and give their fermionic realization.

First order deformations in heterotic compactifications
 Vortrag im Rahmen des SFB Transregio 71 
Many beautiful geometric structures, such as CalabiYau (CY) manifolds and their moduli spaces, arise naturally in the context of string theory. In heterotic string theory a generalization of CY geometry is given by holomorphic vector bundles over CY spaces. This talk is concerned with more general heterotic geometries: vector bundles over complex but typically nonKaehler manifolds. I will review this geometric structure and its origin in string theory and then focus on a characterization of the first order deformation space of these geometries.

Hartmut Weiß (LMU München):
Geometric flows and special holonomy
Vortrag im Rahmen des SFB Transregio 71
Metrics with holonomy contained in G_2 on a 7manifold are
induced by socalled positive 3forms which are torsionfree, i.e. satisfy a
certain nonlinear 1st order PDE. I will discuss a parabolic flow on
positive 3forms whose stationary points are precisely given by the
torsionfree ones. This is joint work with F. Witt.
If time permits I will describe a generalization to a spinorial setting
(joint with B. Ammann and F. Witt).

Analysis on crepant resolutions of CalabiYau orbifolds
A CalabiYau orbifold is locally modeled on C^n/G with G a finite subgroup of SU(n). If the singularity is isolated, then the crepant resolution (if it exists) is an ALE manifold, for which indextype results are well known. However, most of the time the singularity is not isolated, and for the corresponding crepant resolution there is no index theorem so far. In this talk, I present the first step towards obtaining such a result: I will introduce the class of iterated coneedge singular manifolds and the corresponding quasiasymptotically conical spaces (for which orbifolds and their crepant resolutions are an example), and buildup the general setup for studying Fredholm properties of geometrical elliptic operators on these spaces. This is joint work with Rafe Mazzeo.

Emanuel Scheidegger:
Special Kähler geometry
I will give an introduction to special Kähler structures and some of their aspects. A special Kähler structure is a connection on the tangent bundle of a Kähler manifold with a number of "special" properties. They appear naturally in the context of certain integrable systems and of moduli spaces of CalabiYau threefolds.
