### Geometry, supersymmetry, and Seiberg-Witten theory

Abstract: I will explain how geometry and supersymmetry are related to the physics of Seiberg-Witten theory. The topological implications of this physical theory will not be discussed.

April 27

### Limits of K3 metrics

Abstract: In March of 2017, I gave a preliminary discussion of the possible limits of a sequence of Ricci-flat metrics on the K3 manifold. I will now give a more thorough discussion of the problem, including recent work of Hein-Song-Viaclovsky-Zhang.
