Descriptif

In a Riemannian 3-manifold, minimal surfaces are critical points of the area functional and can be a useful tool to understand the geometry and the topology of the ambient manifold. The aim of these lectures is to give some basic definitions about minimal surface theory and present some results about the construction of minimal surfaces in Riemannian 3-manifolds.

I will discuss a Kuranishi-type theorem for deformations of complex structure on ALE Kahler surfaces, which will be used to prove that for any scalar-flat Kahler ALE surface, all small deformations of

Robert Haslhofer - The moduli space of 2-convex embedded spheres

We investigate the topology of the space of smoothly embedded n-spheres in R^{n+1}, i.e. the quotient space M_n:=Emb(S^n,R^{n+1})/Diff(S^n). By Hatcher’s proof of the Smale conjecture, M_2 is

Given a closed and oriented manifold M and Riemannian tensors g0, g1, ... on M that satisfy g0 < gj, vol(M, gj)→vol (M, g0) and diam(M, gj)≤D we will see that (M, gj) converges to (M, g0) in the
