## Geometric Flows in Riemannian and Complex Geometry

**Date:**
2 - 6 May 2016

**Location: ** MSRI

**Event type:**
Workshop

**Organisers: ** Tobias Colding (MIT), John Lott (Berkeley), Natasa Sesum (Rutgers)

**Website:**www.msri.org/workshops/705

This workshop will concentrate on parabolic methods in both Riemannian and complex geometry. Topics will include:

- Ricci flow. Analytic questions about Ricci flow in three dimensions. Possible applications of Ricci flow to 4-manifold topology. Ricci flow in higher dimensions under curvature assumptions.
- Kähler-Ricci Flow. Applications to the Kähler-Einstein problem. Connections to the minimal model program. Study of Kähler-Ricci solutions and limits of Kähler-Ricci flow.
- Mean curvature flow. Singularity analysis. Generic mean curvature flow.
- Other geometric flows such as Calabi flow and pluriclosed flow.
