Geometry & Topology Seminar
The Einstein Equation on Manifolds with Large Symmetry Groups
Timothy Buttsworth (Queensland)
Thursday 19 April 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 351.
Please join us for lunch after the talk.
In this talk I will discuss the problem of finding Einstein metrics in the homogeneous and cohomogeneity one setting. In particular, I will describe a recent result
concerning existence of solutions to the Dirichlet problem for cohomogeneity one Einstein metrics.
