Geometry Seminar: The Kahler-Ricci flow and its singularities.
Professor Valentino Tosatti from Northwestern University will give a talk in our Geometry Seminar on Monday – Dec.1st at 11am in DM144.
Title: The Kahler-Ricci flow and its singularities
Abstract: I will give an introduction to the study of Ricci flow on compact Kahler manifolds, and explain how its behavior reflects the structure of the complex manifold. I will then describe a result (joint with T.Collins) which gives a geometric description of the set where finite-time singularities occur, answering a conjecture of Feldman-Ilmanen-Knopf and Campana.
