PDE and Differential Geometry Seminar
Rigidity of Hyperbolic Space
Daniel Martin (Trinity College)

Monday, October 7, 2019
2:30pm – 3:30pm

Storrs Campus
MONT 214

The goal of this talk is to give a characterization of hyperbolic space using a geometric invariant that is defined for a class of manifolds asymptotic to hyperbolic space. This result is inspired by a characterization of Euclidean space called the rigidity of the Riemannian positive mass theorem in the context of general relativity. We discuss the history and context of our result, as well as some of the interesting elements of its proof
