Topology of compact 3-quasi-Sasakian manifolds

Antonio De Nicola

(download presentation)

I will present our preliminary results on the topology of compact 3-quasi-Sasakian manifolds. This class of manifolds includes both 3-cosymplectic and 3-Sasakian manifolds as special cases of minimum and maximum rank, respectively. Recently, there has been an increasing interest toward these manifolds, especially the 3-Sasakian case, due to their applications to physics.
