# Cohomology of hyperkahler manifolds

Playing this video requires the latest flash player from Adobe.

I will talk about compact hyperkahler manifolds, which generalize the famous K3 surface to the higher dimensions. Given a compact simple hyperkahler manifold $M$, I will describe how the structure of cohomology algebra H*(M) is related with the so(b_2+2) Lie algebra action and the second cohomology group. I will explain how this is applied to the generalization of Kuga-Satake construction which allows us to assign for K3-type Hodge structure a Hodge structure of weight one (i.e. complex torus).
