Scattering Operators in Conformal Geometry

GEOMETRIC PDE SEMINAR
Topic:Scattering Operators in Conformal Geometry
Speaker:Jie Qing
Affiliation:University of California at Santa Cruz and Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Thursday, October 9
Time/Room:1:30pm - 3:30pm/S-101

We will discuss the introduction of the scattering operators associated with a conformal manifold by Graham and Zworski. Then we will discuss some uses of such family of operators in describing conformally invariant global quantities for conformal manifolds. We will report some of our works in recent years in this direction.
