This Thursday at 12:00, U. Haifa Topology & Geometry seminar on April 11, 2019

Geometry & Topology Seminar

Speaker:  Vladimir Rovenski (University of Haifa)

Topic:  Extrinsic Geometry of Foliations

Place:    room 614 in the Science & Education Building

Time   12:00

Date:  Thursday, April 11, 2019


The talk is devoted to particular problems of the Extrinsic Geometry

of Foliations, which, roughly speaking, describes how the leaves are located

within the ambient Riemannian manifold. The following topics seem to be

central in the field:

  1. Integral formulae for foliations.
  2. Variations (and critical metrics) of functionals defined on foliations.
  3. Prescribing the curvature of foliations using extrinsic geometric flows.
