PERELMAN'S PROOF OF THE POINCAR´ E CONJECTURE: A NONLINEAR PDE PERSPECTIVE

- Mathematics
- 2006

We discuss some of the key ideas of Perelman's proof of Poincare's conjecture via the Hamilton program of using the Ricci flow, from the perspec- tive of the modern theory of nonlinear partial… Expand

In this purely expository note, we deduce a few known direct consequences of Perelman’s canonical neighborhood theorem for 3-dimensional Ricci flow and compactness theorem for 3-dimensional… Expand

A Simple Proof On Poincar\'e Conjecture

- Mathematics
- 2008

We give a simple proof on the Poincar\'e's conjecture which states that every compact smooth $3-$manifold which is homotopically equivalent to $S^3$ is diffeomorphic to $S^3$.

A note on the Hitchin-Thorpe inequality and Ricci flow on 4-manifolds

Relative volume comparison of Ricci flow

- Mathematics
- 2021

In this paper we derive a relative volume comparison of Ricci flow under a certain local curvature condition. It is a refinement of Perelman’s no local collapsing theorem in Perelman (2002).

Relative volume comparison of Ricci Flow and its applications

- Mathematics

In this paper, we derive a relative volume comparison estimate along Ricci flow and apply it to studying the Gromov-Hausdorff convergence of K\"ahler-Ricci flow on a minimal manifold. This new… Expand

Optimal transport and Perelman’s reduced volume

- Mathematics
- 2008

We show that a certain entropy-like function is convex, under an optimal transport problem that is adapted to Ricci flow. We use this to reprove the monotonicity of Perelman’s reduced volume.
