On solitons for the G_2 –Laplacian flow . LG&TBQ Conference. University of Michigan. June 11, 2019

National Scientific Meeting

This was a plenary lecture at a week-long NSF-supported conference at the University of Michigan whose purpose was to highlight the work of and facilitate networking among LG&BTQ mathematicians. Abstract: For closed G_2-structures on 7–manifolds, there is a natural analog of the Ricci-flow for Riemannian metrics. In this talk, after giving a brief introduction to the geometry of G_2–structures, I will discuss what we know about this flow, including short time existence, convergence, and the existence of solitons.
