Some complex structures on product of 2-spheres:  We will discuss strategies to distinguish between some distinct complex (in fact Kähler) structures on products of 2-spheres. To do this we will look at complex Bott manifolds. These manifolds are constructed iteratively as complex projective line bundles over the manifold in the iteration below. The construction of these manifolds and the nice topological properties they enjoy will also be discussed in the talk. This is joint work with Jean-Fran ̧cois Lafont and Fangyang Zheng.
