  • Date: 09/26/2008
  • Time: 12:00
Lecturer(s):

Dr. Frank Morgan, (Williams College, USA) PIMS Distinguished Visitor, Geometry & Harmonic Analysis Collaborative Research Group

Location: 

University of Calgary

Topic: 

Putting a density (as in calculus or physics) on the plane can make for some interesting geometry. Perelman used such an idea in his proof of the Poincaré conjecture. No prerequisites.
