Forty Years of Ricci Flow: The Geometric-Flow Revolution in Global Differential Geometry: July 11-15, 2022

Participant List Application

Organized by: Eric Bahuaud, Seattle University
Panagiota Daskalopoulos, Columbia University
Christine Guenther, Pacific University
James Isenberg, University of Oregon
Dan Knopf, The University of Texas at Austin
Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook University.

The Ricci flow has played a decisive role in geometry and topology during the forty years since it was first introduced by Richard Hamilton. Other geometric flow equations have also led to impressive results, and all of these developments have co-evolved as interdependent parts of a thriving intellectual ecosystem. The workshop will bring established international experts in this vibrant area into contact with promising young researchers who are developing new approaches to the subject. The workshop will thus simultaneously celebrate the stunning past achievements of geometric flows, and provide a forum for the development of new ideas by a new generation of geometric analysts.
