Geometry Seminar: The Kahler-Ricci flow and its singularities.

Event information
Venue:DM 144

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.
