# A general convergence result for the Ricci flow in higher dimensions

@article{Brendle2007AGC, title={A general convergence result for the Ricci flow in higher dimensions}, author={S. Brendle}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2007} }

Let (M,g_0) be a compact Riemannian manifold of dimension n \geq 4. We show that the normalized Ricci flow deforms g_0 to a constant curvature metric provided that (M,g_0) x R has positive isotropic curvature. This condition is stronger than 2-positive flag curvature but weaker than 2-positive curvature operator.
