Séminaire Bourbaki, Vol. 1991/92. Exposés 745-759 (avec table par noms d’auteurs de 1948/49 à 1991/92). Paris: Société Mathématique de France, Astérisque. 206, 137-166 (Exp. No. 748) (1992).
Summary: The concept of a hyper-Kähler manifold provides a means of introducing the algebra of quaternions into differential geometry. For a long time, there were few nontrivial examples, but through various constructions the subject has in recent years developed enormously, and one may now find naturally occurring hyper-Kähler manifolds in many different contexts, including the resolution of singularities, coadjoint orbits of complex Lie groups, and moduli spaces of connections.
