Modern Manifolds from Ancient Polyhedra

  • Pietro Giuseppe FréEmail author


In this chapter which is the last we turn to the analysis of important developments in complex geometry which took place in the 1980s–1990s, directly motivated by supersymmetry and supergravity and completely inconceivable outside such a framework. Notwithstanding their roots in the theoretical physics of the superworld, such developments constitute, by now, the basis of some of the most innovative and alive research directions of contemporary geometry.
