2005 Bloomington Geometry Workshop
Indiana University, Bloomington
April 8-10, 2005  


The geometry group at Indiana University will again host an April workshop with the help of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Mathematics. The aim of the gathering is to foster interaction among mathematicians having diverse geometric interests.

Schedule: Please click here for the complete schedule.


The workshop will begin on Friday, April 8, at 4:00 pm with a colloquium lecture:

Gang Tian (Princeton) `K-stability for algebraic manifolds'

The workshop continues on Saturday and Sunday with lectures by:

  • Ian Agol (Chicago) `Volumes of hyperbolic Haken 3-manifolds'
  • François Ledrappier (South Bend) `Some Martin points for rank one manifolds'
  • Young-Heon Kim (Evanston) `Holomorphic extensions of determinants of Laplacians'
  • John Lott (Ann Arbor) `Ricci curvature for metric-measure spaces'
  • Gang Tian (Princeton) `Einstein metrics in dimension four'
  • Erik Van Erp (Penn State) `Noncommutative geometry and index theory on contact manifolds'
  • Fangyang Zheng (Columbus) `Examples of positively curved complete Kähler manifolds'
  • NSF support:
    With the support of the NSF, we will be able to reimburse the travel and local expenses of many junior participants. Please indicate on the registration page whether you need support.
