Title: McKay correspondence for some almost complex spaces.

Speaker: Mainak Poddar, ISI Kolkata

Abstract: We look at McKay correspondence as a correspondence in a certain cohomology theory under crepant resolution of orbifold singularities. In algebraic geometry this may be proved in complete generality by using motivic integration. However one can sensibly pose the question whether a similar correspondence holds for almost complex orbifolds. We will describe some progress in answering this question for a particular class of interesting almost complex spaces
