Introduction to Geometric Flows

MacPhail Room, 4351 Herzberg Laboratories
Carleton University

In this expository talk, Dr. Tian will give a brief tour on geometric flows. He will start with Ricci flow and discuss some of its applications in geometry. He will then discuss some new geometric flows introduced more recently, and show how they can be applied to studying geometry of manifolds. Finally, Dr. Tian will present some recent results and open problems.
