Title:The Sphere Theorem; Ricci Curvature
Seminar:Geometry Working Seminar
Speaker:Jinpeng Lu; Nan Li, PSU
Abstract:
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.
