Following the famous SYZ-conjecture in 1996, M Gross and PMH Wilson proved a version of it in 2000 (math/0008018) for the K3 surface with 24 type I1 singular fibers. The analyses heavily relied on constructing an almost Ricci flat metric by glueing 24 copiesof the Ooguri-Vafa metric to a standard semi-flat metric.

In the first part of my talk I plan to (partially) explain this procedure, and in the final part I want to give an outlook on higher dimensional
versions of this construction. I propose a (corollary) of this theorem, for a very specific class of CYs that are total spaces of T^4 bundles over S^2, which locally look like K3 x T^2 (hep-th/0810.5195).
In order to further entice my audience the speaker shall provide cookies. An attempt to save time has been made, in view of the positive avalancheof interesting seminars this week.
