DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Eirik Eik Svanes (LPTHE)\nI will begin by reviewing
some recent developments in the heterotic moduli problem\, both for six an
d seven dimensional compactifications to SU(3) and G2 structure manifolds
respectively. After a brief overview of the infinitesimal (massless) modul
i of six dimensional compactifications\, I turn to the corresponding seven
dimensional story. There are many similarities between the two situations
\, but also crucial differences that I will expand upon. Finally\, I will
report on some recent progress in understanding the finite deformations of
six dimensional heterotic compactifications. We will see that the Maurer-
Cartan equation of the corresponding differentially graded Lie algebra can
be understood as the equation of motion of an effective theory derived fr
om the heterotic superpotential. This effective theory has features which
combine and generalise aspects of both Holomorphic Chern-Simons and Kodair
a-Spencer theory.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/78/contributio
