Geometric Analysis and Topology Seminar

Yamabe Flow, its Ancient Solutions and Singularity Formation

Speaker: Natasa Sesum, Rutgers New Brunswick

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 517

Date: Friday, April 19, 2013, 11 a.m.


We will discuss conformally flat complete Yamabe flow and show that in some cases we can give the precise description of singularity profiles close to the extinction time of the solution. We will also talk about a construction of new compact ancient solutions to the Yamabe flow.
