Introductory Workshop: New Frontiers in Curvature August 26, 2024 - August 30, 2024
Registration Deadline: August 30, 2024 9 months from now
To apply for Funding you must register by: May 26, 2024 6 months from now
Parent Program:
Location: SLMath: Eisenbud Auditorium, Atrium, Online/Virtual, Front Courtyard, 2nd Floor Deck
Organizers Ailana Fraser (University of British Columbia), Karsten Grove (University of Notre Dame), Richard Schoen (University of California, Irvine), Catherine Searle (Wichita State University), LEAD Lu Wang (Yale University)
Starter project   2019 11 25 12.18.26
The spatial Schwarzschild space with minimal surface boundary foliated by the inverse mean curvature flow
This workshop will include introductory lectures on each of the four main topics of the program: geometric flows, geometric problems in mathematical relativity, global Riemannian geometry, and minimal submanifolds. The workshop will also have semi-expository lectures on recent advances and breakthroughs involving interactions between the four main topics. This will set the stage and provide important context for the semester-long program itself.
