CalTitle1: Tuschmann -- Spaces and Moduli Spaces of Nonnegatively Curved Riemannian Metrics
Geometry and Topology Seminar
Spaces and Moduli Spaces of Nonnegatively Curved Riemannian Metrics
Wilderich Tuschmann (Karlsruhe)
Please join us for lunch after the talk.
I will report on general results and open questions about spaces and moduli spaces of Riemannian metrics
with non-negative Ricci or non-negative sectional curvature on closed and open manifolds, and, in particular,
the first classes of manifolds for which these spaces have non-trivial rational homotopy, homology and cohomology groups.
