Ricci Flow and Geometrization of 3-Manifolds
December 9 to December 13, 2003
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Bruce Kleiner
This workshop This workshop will be devoted to an intensive study of Grisha
Perelman's recent work on Thurston's Geometrization Conjecture
using Hamilton's Ricci flow. Discussion of background material
will be kept to a minimum so as to allow time to focus on details
of Perelman's proof.
This workshop will be followed by a program at MSRI that will continue
the discussion of Perelman's work as well as provide background
material and set the work in a wider context.
