Abstract: One can think of torsion geometry as a triplet consisting of a smooth manifold endowed with a Riemannian metric and a three-form; the three-form is the torsion of a metric connection. If the three-form is closed, we have a strong geometry with torsion. The quest for systematic investigation of this type of geometry motivates the construction of a map, called a multi-moment map, which is very similar to the moment map from symplectic geometry. In my talk I will explain the theory of multi-moment maps.
