On the Ricci flow and the asymptotics of its solutions on $R2$.Colloquium
|Speaker: ||Natasa Sesum, Columbia University|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|
|Start time: ||Thu, Feb 7 2008, 4:10PM|
In the first part of the talk I will mention some convergence, stability results for the Ricci flow equation on compact manifolds and the uniqueness of a limiting metric to the Ricci flow equation. In the second part of the talk I will show a relation betwen the Ricci flow equation on R2 and the logarithmic fast diffusion equation of a conformal factor. I will discuss the asymptotics of the Ricci flow on R2 in the case of a finite initial mass.
