Pure Maths Colloquium: Rigidity theorems for 3-manifolds with positive scalar curvature

Presented by Andre Neves, Imperial College / Princeton University

30 November 2009 16:15 in CM221

A classical theorem in Geometry states that a 3-manifold with nonnegative scalar curvature having an area minimizing torus has universal cover isometric to R^3. I will talk about extensions of this result to the case where the scalar curvature is strictly positive.
