Abstract:

In this talk we shall take a casual stroll through an odd-dimensional geometry known as Sasakian geometry. This geometry was initiated by Shigeo Sasaki in the 1960's and has gained an immense amount of attention particularly in the last two decades. One reason for this attention is that Sasakian geometry can be viewed as a tool that can be used to construct special spaces, which are called "Einstein". We will discuss these ideas by together building up a good example. If time permits we shall discuss more recent results in the area.
