Title: Constructions of generalized complex structures in dimension four.
Abstract: Recent constructions of exotic smooth structures on small 4-manifolds can be canonically used to expand our understanding of generalized complex structures. This talk will be an exposition of such an enterprise, whose produce include unbosoming unexpected phenomena on the number of type change loci of a generalized complex structure, and their construction on a myriad of 4-manifolds.
