Joint Colloquium: Tian -- Curvature flows and complex geometry

We are delighted to welcome a very distinguished speaker for a special colloquium: (note
special day and time) 

Gang Tian (Princeton) 

Curvature flows and complex geometry, 275 Carslaw, Monday 20th July 12-1 PM.  

In this general talk, I will discuss how curvature flows can be applied to studying
complex geometric problems.  I will show interactions between singularity formation of
curvature flows and classification of algebraic manifolds.  I will also discuss some
open analytic problems which arise from geometric applications.  

We will go afterwards for lunch at the Forum restaurant.  If you plan to join the lunch,
please RSVP to carberry@maths.usyd.edu.au, as the restaurant tells me it’s essential for
them to have accurate information regarding numbers.  

Prof Tian is a Veblen prize winner and a member of the American Academy of Arts and
Sciences.  He is known for his work on Kähler–Einstein metrics, moduli spaces of maps of
curves, and on the Poincare conjecture.
