James Gray - Virginia Tech

In this talk we will discuss the application of Machine Learning techniques to obtain numerical approximations to various metrics of SU(3) structure on six manifolds. More precisely, we will be interested in SU(3) structures whose torsion classes make them suitable backgrounds for various string compactifications. A variety of aspects of this topic will be covered. These will include learning moduli dependent Ricci-Flat metrics on Calabi-Yau threefolds and obtaining numerical approximations to torsional SU(3) structures.
