Mathematics Colloquium: Artem Pulemotov
Topic: The prescribed Ricci curvature problem
We will discuss the problem of recovering the 'shape' of a Riemannian manifold $M$ from its Ricci curvature. After reviewing the relevant background and the history of the subject, we will focus on the case where $M$ has a large symmetry group. Based on joint work with Wolfgang Ziller (The University of Pennsylvania).
