Due to their high degree of symmetry, symmetric spaces allow one to transfer many problems related to their geometry to the simpler level of Lie groups and Lie algebras. As a consequence, they are a perfect test ground for a wide variety of questions in differential geometry.
This online seminar focuses primarily on isometric actions on symmetric spaces and submanifold theory thereof. We will sometimes take some diversions into adjacent areas like various geometric structures on symmetric spaces, homogeneous spaces, cohomogeneity one manifolds, polar actions, certain topics in Lie theory, etc. The seminar is oriented towards young researchers in the field, especially PhDs and postdocs, but everyone is welcome to join!
