Pure Maths Colloquium: Generalized Sphere Theorems and Curvature Flows

Presented by Huy Nguyen, University of Warwick (UK)

10 May 2010 16:15 in CM221

In this talk we will discuss how recent advances in curvature flows such as the Brendle-Schoen proof of the differentiable sphere theorem by Ricci flow and Huisken-Sinestrari's classification of two-convex hypersurfaces in Euclidean space by mean curvature have led us to formulate new versions of classical sphere theorems, that is for certain curvature conditions invariant under geometric flows, we can classify the manifolds as connected sums of a finite collection of well understood manifolds.
