. In this paper, for any compact Lie group G , we show that the space of G -invariant Riemannian metrics with positive scalar curvature (PSC) on any closed three-manifold is either empty or contractible. In particular, we prove the generalized Smale conjecture for spherical three-orbifolds. Moreover, for connected G , we make a classification of all PSC G -invariant three-manifolds.

Deforming three-manifolds with positive scalar curvature
In this paper we prove that the moduli space of metrics with positive scalar curvature of an orientable compact 3-manifold is path-connected. The proof uses the Ricci flow with surgery, the conformal
Deforming 3-manifolds of bounded geometry and uniformly positive scalar curvature
We prove that the moduli space of complete Riemannian metrics of bounded geometry and uniformly positive scalar curvature on an orientable 3-manifold is path-connected. This generalizes the main

Ancient solutions to the Ricci flow in dimension $3$
It is known from work of Perelman that any finite-time singularity of the Ricci flow on a compact three-manifold is modeled on an ancient $\kappa$-solution. We prove that the every noncompact
Constrained deformations of positive scalar curvature metrics
We present a series of results concerning the interplay between the scalar curvature of a manifold and the mean curvature of its boundary. In particular, we give a complete topological
Actions of SO(2) on 3-Manifolds
The purpose of this report is to give a complete equivariant and topological classification of the effective actions of the circle group, SO(2), on closed, connected 3-manifolds. The equivariant
3-Dimensional G-Manifolds with 2-Dimensional Orbits
In [3] Paul S. Mostert classifies all topological actions of compact connected Lie groups on connected (n + l)-dimensional manifolds which have n-dimensional orbits. If one starts from the assumption
Rotational symmetry of ancient solutions to the Ricci flow in dimension $3$ -- The compact case
In [4], we proved that every noncompact ancient $\kappa$-solution to the Ricci flow in dimension $3$ is either locally isometric to a family of shrinking cylinders, or isometric to the Bryant
Uniqueness and stability of Ricci flow through singularities
We verify a conjecture of Perelman, which states that there exists a canonical Ricci flow through singularities starting from an arbitrary compact Riemannian 3-manifold. Our main result is a
