PD Dr. Miles SIMON (University of Freiburg, Germany): Stability of hyperbolic and Euclidean space under Ricci flow

Academic or specialist Colloquium / Congress / Forum

We study the Ricci flow of initial metrics which are small perturbations of the standard hyperbolic metric or Euclidean metric. If the square of the perturbation is bounded in the integral sense, and small enough in the C0 norm, then we show the following. The Ricci flow exists for all times and converges back to the standard metric modulo a diffeomorphism. (Joint work with O.Schnuerer, F.Schulze.)
