Friday, June 25, 2021 - 10:00 to 11:00
On Zoom
Professor Shin-ichi Ohta , Osaka University and RIKEN

Title: Localization and isoperimetric inequalities

Abstract: The localization (a.k.a. needle decomposition) is a powerful technique reducing an inequali ty on a high - dimensional space to its one - dimensional counterpart on geodesics. Recently the localization was generalized to Riemannian manifolds as well as metric measure spaces, and applied to analyze various geometric and analytic inequalities. In this talk, we focus on isoperimetric inequalities, and discuss also their rigidity and stability if time permits

Professor Luca Capogna , Smith College Title : CURVE SHRINKING FLOW IN CARNOT GROUPS

Abstract: This is a preliminary report on a joint project with Enrico Le Donne (University of Fribourg, Switzerland). Motivated by the study of geodesics in sub - Riemannian geometry, we use techniques from Lie group geometry and Calculus of Variations to derive a system of PDE that describes the gradient flow of the length functional for horizontal (i.e. tangent to the first layer of the Lie algebra stratification) curves in a rank - two Carnot group of arbitrary step. Similar ly to the Euclidean area - preserving curve shrinking flow, our PDE has a nonlocal term, which arises in view of the non - holonomic constraint, i.e. for each time the curve must be horizontal. We prove short time existence for the flow, if the initial data i s a non - abnormal horizontal curve, and provide some indications of what happens in the abnormal case.
