The Gromov-Hausdorff Topology: Taking Limits of Riemannian Manifolds

Friday, November 11, 2011, 4:00pm
Ungar Building Room 402


Abstract:It is a natural question, which arises in practice, to ask how one might take the limit of a sequence of Riemannian manifolds. Several notions of convergence have been developed, but we will focus on the Gromov-Hausdorff topology. After a brief motivation, including that of the Ricci flow, we will focus on getting a feel for the Gromov-Hausdorff distance by working out some basic examples and results. Time permitting, we will discuss alternative notions of convergence and the pros and cons of each.
