Perelman’s Functional for Manifolds with Conical Singularities

Xianzhe Dai (UC Santa Barbara)

Wednesday 14 December 11:00–12:00 in Carslaw 535A.

Please join us for lunch after the talk!

Abstract: Perelman's entropy functional plays an important role in analyzing Ricci flow. We develop Perelman's entropy functional for manifolds with conical singularity. It involves a singular Schrodinger operator and the analysis of the asymptotic behavior of its eigenfunctions near the conical singularity. This is joint work with Changliang Wang.
