Joint Colloquium: Cao -- Ricci flow, Einstein manifolds and Ricci solitons Speaker: Prof. Xiaodong Cao http://www.math.cornell.edu/m/People/Faculty/cao Time: Friday, Oct 18, 2:30--3:30PM Room: Chemistry Lecture Theatre 2, the University of Sydney Lunch plan: we meet near Level 2 entrance to Carslaw Building around 1PM. The lunch would be at GrandStand with reservation at 1:10PM. ----------------------------------------------- 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. ----------------------------------------------- Joint Colloquium web site: http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/SemConf/JointColloquium/index.html
