I will discuss new constructions of complete Riemannian 7-manifolds with holonomy G_2 from joint work with Lorenzo Foscolo and Mark Haskins (arXiv:1709.04904 and arXiv:1805.0261). From circle bundles over 3-dimensional Calabi-Yau cones we obtain infinitely many diffeomorphism types of complete G_2-manifolds with “asymptotically locally conical” ends, ie the end is approximately a circle bundle with fibres of constant circumference over a Calabi-Yau cone. In the special case of circle bundles over the Calabi metric on the total space of the canonical bundle of P1 x P1, these metrics have cohomogeneity one, making it possible to identify an asymptotically conical limit. This way we find also infinitely many topologically distinct examples of asymptotically conical G_2-manifolds.
