Geometric Analysis Seminar
Surfaces of Low Entropy
Location: Hill 705
Date & time: Tuesday, 24 January 2017 at 3:00PM - 3:11PM
Professor Lu Wang, University of Wisconsin: The entropy of a (hyper)-surface is given by the supremum over all Gaussian integrals with varying centers and scales. It is a geometric invariant that measures complexity of the surface. This quantity is introduced by Colding and Minicozzi to understand the singularity formation of mean curvature flow of surfaces. In this talk, I will discuss several results which show that closed surfaces that have small entropy are simple in various senses.
