Title : Spacetime with Torsion
Abstract: I will discuss the construction of complex manifolds with supersymmetry that I had done with Jun Li and Fu. These manifolds satisfy the equations of Strominger and are vacuum solutions to heterotic string theory. Their role in the subject of complex manifolds will be discussed as well.
