Geometry & Topology Seminar

Title: Singular metric with positive scalar curvature
Speaker: Man-Chun Lee (The Chinese University of Hong Kong)
Date: 10 November 2021
Time: 4:00 pm
Venue: MS teams (team code hiq1jfr)

A celebrated theorem of Gromov-Lawson and Schoen-Yau states that a n-torus cannot admit metrics with positive scalar curvature. Thus, the torus is of vanishing Yamabe type. In this talk, we will discuss its extension to metrics with some singularity. This is a joint work with L.-F. Tam.
