AGR Seminar

The signature of the Ricci operator of left-invariant Riemannian metrics on Lie groups

Prof Yuri Nikonorov (Southern Mathematical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences)

Host venue
La Trobe University

Abstract
The main question which we will discuss in this talk, is the following: "What types of signatures could be realised as the signatures of the Ricci operator of some left-invariant Riemannian metric on a given Lie group?" This problem is completely solved for low-dimensional Lie groups, but there are still many open questions in the general case.

Seminar convenor
Dr Yury Nikolayevsky
