Description

The workshop will concentrate on parabolic methods in both Riemannian and complex geometry. The topics will include

  • Ricci flow. Analytic questions about Ricci flow in three dimensions. Possible applications of Ricci flow to 4-manifold topology. Ricci flow in higher dimensions under curvature assumptions.
  • Kähler-Ricci Flow. Applications to the Kähler-Einstein problem. Connections to the minimal model program. Study of Kähler-Ricci solitons and limits of Kähler-Ricci flow.
  • Mean curvature flow. Singularity analysis. Generic mean curvature flow.
  • Other geometric flows such as Calabi flow and pluriclosed flow.
