Geometry Workshop

University of Copenhagen

June 11-15, 2012

We are planning two days of talks, and the rest of the week we plan to have ad hoc activity

Venue: The lectures will be held at the Niels Bohr Academy at Blegdamsvej 17, University of Copenhagen. The event is hosted by the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation. In case you need accommodation, you need to book it yourself. A list of hotels can be found here.

Program: Here is a tentative program for the workshop. Please also see our calendar for individual announcements of talks.

  • June 11, 11:15-12:00, Bruce Kleiner, NYU: Asymptotic geometry, finite generation of fundamental groups, and harmonic functions I.
  • June 11, 14:15-15:00, John Lott, Berkeley: Collapsing with a lower bound on the curvature operator.
