Geometric Flows in Riemannian and Complex Geometry May 02, 2016 - May 06, 2016
Registration Deadline: May 02, 2016 over 1 year from now
To apply for Funding you must register by: February 02, 2016 about 1 year from now
Parent Program: Differential Geometry
Organizers Tobias Colding (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), LEAD John Lott (University of California, Berkeley), Natasa Sesum (Rutgers University)

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.
