Workshop on Ricci Curvature

Title: Ricci measure for some singular Riemannian metrics
Speaker: John Lott
Speaker Info: Berkeley
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We define the Ricci curvature, as a measure, for certain singular torsion-free connections on the tangent bundle of a manifold. The definition uses an integral formula and vector-valued half-densities. We give relevant examples in which the Ricci measure can be computed. In the time dependent setting, we give a weak notion of a Ricci flow solution on a manifold.
