Differential Geometry & Geometric Analysis Seminar

The Differential Geometry and Geometry Analysis seminar sees talks most often about interactions between elliptic PDE's and differential geometry.  Common topics include (but are not limited to) conformal geometry, minimal surfaces and other variational problems, K\"ahler geometry, CR geometry, elliptic problems from general relativity, nonlinear and/or nonlocal elliptic or parabolic PDE's, and geometric functional inequalities.

Embeddedness and convexity for hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space

I will talk a proof of the conjecture of Alexander and Currier on the embeddedness of a nonnegatively curved hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space. I will also discuss some recent works on hypersurfaces with nonnegative Ricci curvature in hyperbolic space.

Multiplicity of constant Q-curvature metrics

I will describe some multiplicity result about constant Q-curvature metrics in the case of homogeneous vibrations and in the case of non compact manifolds related to a singular version of the Q-curvature problem.
