The lyf so short, the craft so longe to lerne.
Aleksandar Milivojevic
Graduate student
I am a fifthyear graduate student, interested mostly in algebraic topology. I think about (rational) homotopy theory and what it can say about (almost) complex manifolds.
My advisor is Dennis Sullivan.
You can find my CV here.

Some short notes
The material below is a mix of mostly expository material and some original results. All manifolds are (unless otherwise stated) smooth, closed, and connected. Minimal models are in the sense of rational homotopy theory.
 On the realization of symplectic algebras and rational homotopy types by closed symplectic manifolds.
 On the sixth kinvariant in the Postnikov tower for BSO(3)
 Geometric formality is not a rational homotopy invariant
 The rational homotopy type of the classifying space for Xfibrations up to fiber homotopy equivalence, with examples (including one where the fiber space X is nonformal).
 Some calculations with the Frölicher spectral sequence.
 A discussion on almost complex and stably almost complex structures, and
the obstructions to such structures in low dimensions. You can find the
minimal models of some relevant homogeneous spaces SO(2n)/U(n)
here.
 The rational homotopy type of the space of almost complex structures on the sixsphere.
 A note on the difference between the sum of the Hodge numbers and Betti numbers on a nonKähler complex manifold.
 A symplectic nonKähler complex threefold all of whose
odd Betti numbers are even, and some almostcomplex four manifolds with no
complex structure. Here is an example of a nonintegrable almost complex structure connected by a path to an integrable
complex structure on a smooth manifold of even dimension four or greater.
 The minimal models of the complex Grassmannians G(2,4), G(2,5), G(2,6), G(3.6)
