Hi everyone! We will be having our first talk of the semester on Tuesday, January 28th, 2019 at 4:10pm. A post doc Christian Ketterer will be speaking.
Details of the room will be announced shortly!
Title: Synthetic curvature bounds – A friendly introduction
Abstract: In this talk I will explain the concepts of synthetic sectional curvature bounds and synthetic lower Ricci bounds and the ideas behind them. Synthetic lower Ricci bounds originated in the last 20 years from the encounter of several mathematical fields, including Riemannian Geometry, Optimal Transport and Information Theory. I will briefly describe these fields and show how they mixed.
