Event Title

On Deformations That Improve the Shape of a Surface

Description

This talk provides an introduction to geometric flows in Euclidean spaces, which improve the shape of a closed-surface modulo scaling. Miao will explain how these flows can be used to establish various isoperimetric-type inequalities by identifying certain monotone quantities along these flows.
