MATRIX-SMRI Symposium:

Singularities in Geometric Flows: An Ancient Perspective

Joint Symposium, 4 - 14 January 2022

Week 1: On-site at MATRIX, Creswick

Week 2: Online via Zoom

The symposium will focus on exciting recent developments in the analysis of geometric flows via soliton and ancient solutions, centred around talks by William P. Minicozzi II (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Nataša Šešum (Rutgers University).

William P. Minicozzi II is the Singer Professor of Mathematics at MIT. Throughout an enduring collaboration with Tobias H. Colding, he has resolved a number of major open problems in several areas of geometric analysis. Colding and Minicozzi received jointly the AMS Oswald Veblen Prize in Geometry in 2010 for major breakthroughs on the structure of embedded minimal surfaces. He gave an invited address at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2006.

Nataša Šešum has made a number of groundbreaking contributions to the analysis of singularities in geometric evolution equations. Her remarkable work with Angenent, Daskalopoulos and others provide the first general classification results for ancient solutions. Nataša was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2014. In 2015 she was elected as a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.

The symposium will also feature thematic online lecture sessions, on-site discussion workshops and online open problem sessions with the chairs.

The first week’s program will take place on-site at MATRIX, Creswick and the second week’s program to be held online. Participation at MATRIX is by invitation only. For more information, please visit the MATRIX Symposium homepage:
