Title: Ricci flow, Einstein manifolds and Ricci solitons

Abstract: In this talk, we will first give a quick introduction to the Ricci flow.
Then we will focus on some recent development on two special solutions: Einstein
manifolds and gradient Ricci solitons, we will restrict our attention to dimension
four.
