MA 336: Topics in Riemannian Geometry

Credits: 3:0

Pre-requisites :

  1. MA 333 - Riemannian Geometry
  2. MA 332 - Algebraic Topology

The first half of the course will focus on convergence theory of Riemannian manifolds. Gromov-Hausdorff convergence, Lipschitz convergence and collapsing theory will be discussed.

The second half will be about the Ricci flow. Existence and uniqueness, maximum principles and Hamilton’s theorem for 3-manifolds with positive Ricci curvature will be covered.
