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