Geometric Flows in Riemannian and Complex Geometry
Month: May 2016
Date: May 2--6
Name: Geometric Flows in Riemannian and Complex Geometry
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
The workshop will concentrate on parabolic methods in both Riemannian and complex geometry. The topics will include
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Mean curvature flow. Singularity analysis. Generic mean curvature flow.
4. Other geometric flows such as Calabi flow and pluriclosed flow.
