​Spherical Metric with conical singularities on 2-spheres

Student-Run Geometry/Topology Seminar

Speaker: Subhadip Dey, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Thu, Dec 7 2017, 2:10PM

In this talk, I will define the notion of spherical metrics on 2-spheres with singularities of a special kind, called “conical singularities”. It is a natural question to ask that for which angles there exists such a sphere. I shall describe some results which mostly answer this question.
