MaPSS: Maths Postgraduate Seminar Series: Bednarek -- Scalar Curvature in the Kahler-Ricci Flow

Hi everyone, 

The next MaPS (the Mathematical Postgraduate Society) Seminar will be on this Tuesday.
Pizza (with vegetarian options) will be provided after.  

Alex is a first-year Ph.D. student at the School of Mathematics and Statistics, advised
by Associate Professor Zhou Zhang.  Alex’s area of research is geometric analysis,
more precisely, the Kahler-Ricci flow.  

Time and date: Tuesday 10 October at 5pm.  

Location: Carslaw 173 and online.

Title: Scalar Curvature in the Kahler-Ricci Flow.  

Abstract: This talk will begin by introducing Kahler manifolds and some of their basic
properties.  We will give a historical introduction to the topic of Kahler-Ricci flow,
discussing Yau’s proof of the Calabi conjecture and the existence of Kahler-Einstein
metrics and H.D.  Cao’s use of the Kahler-Ricci flow as an alternate proof of the
conjecture.  Then we will examine the flow in a more general setting and analyze results
by Z.  Zhang concerning the behaviour of the scalar curvature in the cases of infinite
and finite time singularities.

group at  Looking forward to seeing you soon!
