Geometry & Topology Seminar

Title: Ricci flow and diagonalizing the Ricci tensor
Speaker: Anusha Krishnan (Syracuse University)
Date: 06 January 2020
Time: 4:00 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

We will discuss some work on the Ricci flow on manifolds with symmetries. In particular, cohomogeneity one manifolds, i.e. a Riemannian manifold M with an isometric action by a Lie group G such that the orbit space M/G is one-dimensional. We will also explain how this relates to diagonalizing the Ricci tensor on Lie groups and homogeneous spaces.
