Title:The Sphere Theorem; Ricci Curvature
Seminar:Geometry Working Seminar
Speaker:Jinpeng Lu; Nan Li, PSU
Jinpeng Lu will quickly show how injectivity radius estimates are used to prove the Sphere Theorem. Then Nan Li will speak on basics in Ricci curvature (Meyer’s Theorem - a trivial generalization of Synge’s, Bishop-Gromov volume growth inequality and maybe he would have time to start U. Abresch distance estimates). We have a challenging goal to get to Colding-Minicozzi and Cheeger-Colding work on non-negative Ricci, but I guess that realistically this has to be put off to the next semester.
