Richard Schoen: Scalar curvature and minimal hypersurface singularities

Time: Thu 2019-09-19 10.00 - 11.00

Location: Seminar Hall Kuskvillan, Institut Mittag-Leffler

Lecturer: Richard Schoen, University of California, Irvine


This will be a lecture on the effect of the possible presence of singularities in volume minimizing hypersurfaces on the proofs of the positive mass theorem and related results concerning manifolds with non-negative scalar curvature. We will explain why many of the results can be proven in the presence of singularities.
