  • e Conjecture, and more generally Thurston’s Geometrization Conjecture, using the Ricci flow approach of Hamilton. Perelman’s proofs are concise and, at times, sketchy. The purpose of these notes is to provide the details that are missing in [46] and [47], which contain Perelman’s arguments for the Geometrization Conjecture. Among other things, we cover the construction of the Ricci flow with surgery of [47]. We also discuss the long-time behavior of the Ricci flow with surgery, which is needed… CONTINUE READING
