### Generalized geometry of type Bn

Abstract:

Generalized geometry of type Bn is the study of geometric structures in T+T*+1, the sum of the tangent and cotangent bundles of a manifold and a trivial rank 1 bundle. The symmetries of this theory include, apart from B-fields, the novel A-fields. The relation between Bn-geometry and usual generalized geometry is stated via generalized reduction.

We show that it is possible to twist T+T
