Title: Introduction to Hyperkahler manifolds
Abstract: We will recall the definition of a K3 surface, and see how to generalise to higher dimensions. We will define hyperkahler manifolds, and provide some constructions and examples. We will introduce the main tools needed in order to study automorphisms of such objects.
