Introductory Workshop: Modern Riemannian Geometry
Month: January 2016
Date: January 18--22
Name: Introductory Workshop: Modern Riemannian Geometry
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
The week will be devoted to an introduction to modern techniques in Riemannian geometry. This is intended to help graduate students and younger researchers get a headstart, in order to increase their participation during the main semester programs and research lectures. To increase outreach, the week will focus on Riemannian geometry and should be largely accessible. Some minicourses on topics of recent interest will be included. The workshop will also have semi-expository lectures dealing with aspects of spaces with curvature bounded from below, since such spaces will occur throughout the semester. We expect that many Berkeley mathematicians and students will participate in the introductory workshop.
