We show that homogeneous Einstein metrics on Euclidean spaces are Einstein solvmanifolds, using that they admit periodic, integrally minimal foliations by homogeneous hypersurfaces. For the geometric flow induced by the orbit-Einstein condition, we construct a Lyapunov function based on curvature estimates which come from real GIT.

Non-compact Einstein manifolds with symmetry

For Einstein manifolds with negative scalar curvature admitting an isometric action of a Lie group G with compact, smooth orbit space, we show the following rigidity result: The nilradical N of G

Ancient solutions of the homogeneous Ricci flow on flag manifolds

For any flag manifold $M=G/K$ of a compact simple Lie group $G$ we describe non-collapsing ancient invariant solutions of the homogeneous unnormalized Ricci flow. Such solutions pass through an



Einstein solvmanifolds have maximal symmetry

All known examples of homogeneous Einstein metrics of negative Ricci curvature can be realized as left-invariant Riemannian metrics on solvable Lie groups. After defining a notion of maximal symmetry

Einstein solvmanifolds are standard

We study Einstein manifolds admitting a transitive solvable Lie group of isometries (solvmanifolds). It is conjectured that these exhaust the class of noncompact homogeneous Einstein manifolds. J.

Einstein Metrics and Mostow Rigidity

Using the new diffeomorphism invariants of Seiberg and Witten, a uniqueness theorem is proved for Einstein metrics on compact quotients of irreducible 4-dimensional symmetric spaces of non-compact


In this paper the structure of simply-transitive isometry groups of a Riemannian space with nonpositive curvature is studied. The results obtained are then applied to classify Riemannian spaces of

Einstein metrics on spheres

We prove the existence of an abundance of new Einstein metrics on odd dimensional spheres including exotic spheres, many of them depending on continuous parameters. The number of families as well as

Non-existence of homogeneous Einstein metrics

We show that there exist infinitely many simply connected compact prime homogeneous spaces $G/H$ with infinite second homotopy group which do not admit $G$-invariant Einstein metrics.

Simply connected manifolds of positive scalar curvature

. Hitchin proved that if M is a spin manifold with positive scalar curvature, then the A^O-characteristic number a(M) vanishes. Gromov and Lawson conjectured that for a simply connected spin manifold

Warped product Einstein metrics on homogeneous spaces and homogeneous Ricci solitons

In this paper we consider connections between Ricci solitons and Einstein metrics on homogeneous spaces. We show that a semi-algebraic Ricci soliton admits an Einstein one-dimensional extension if

Four-Manifolds without Einstein Metrics

It is shown that there are infinitely many compact simply con- nected smooth 4-manifolds which do not admit Einstein metrics, but nev- ertheless satisfy the strict Hitchin-Thorpe inequality 2 !> 3|"

Désingularisation de métriques d’Einstein. I

We find a new obstruction for a real Einstein 4-orbifold with an A1-singularity to be a limit of smooth Einstein 4-manifolds. The obstruction is a curvature condition at the singular point.For
