Starting Ricci flow with rough initial data (English)
[ 講演概要 ]
Ricci flow is a nonlinear PDE that is traditionally used to deform a manifold we would like to understand into a manifold we already understand. For example, Hamilton showed that a simply connected closed 3-manifold with positive Ricci curvature is deformed into a manifold of constant sectional curvature, thus allowing us to identify it as topologically a sphere.
In this talk we take a look at a different use of Ricci flow. We would like to exploit the regularising effect of parabolic PDE to turn a rough space into a smooth space by running the Ricci flow. In practice, this revolves around proving good a priori estimates on solutions, and taking unorthodox approaches to solving parabolic PDE. We will see some theory, first in 2D, then in higher dimension, and some applications.
