Title: 
Matrix theory compactifications on twisted tori
Abstract: 

I will discuss compactifications of Matrix theory on tori, twisted tori and non-commutative deformations of them. The construction of multidimensional twisted tori realized as nilmanifolds based on certain nilpotent Lie algebras will be reviewed. Subsequently, matrix compactifications on such backgrounds will be defined and certain classes of solutions will be presented. Finally, I will comment on the correspondence among the obtained solutions and flux compactifications of 11-dimensional supergravity, possible relations to non-geometric fluxes, as well as on relations among the solutions themselves, such as Seiberg-Witten maps and T-duality.
