Graduate Student Kahler-Ricci Flow Seminar

Graduate Student Kahler-Ricci Flow Seminar

Fall 2011

Organizer: Tristan Collins


This seminar is focused on covering the major developments and ideas in the Kahler-Ricci flow, with a particular emphasis on the connections between the various algebraic notions of stability and the key estimates in establishing convergence of the flow. For the fall of 2011 we will be focusing primarily on the Ricci flow approach to the Minimal Model Program.
