Abstract: Generalized geometry is a recently discovered (Hitchin, 2003) branch of differential geometry which has attracted a significant amount of interest due to the emergence of several connections with areas of mathematical physics. After introducing the basic underlying structures of generalized geometry we will explore double field theory, a form of string theory, where generalized geometric structures are used.
