Prof. Karin Hanley Melnick (University of Maryland)

A D'Ambra Theorem in conformal Lorentzian geometry

Abstract: D'Ambra proved in 1988 that the isometry group of a compact, simply connected, real-analytic Lorentzian manifold must be compact. I will discuss my recent theorem that the conformal group of such a manifold must also be compact, and how it relates to the Lorentzian Lichnerowicz Conjecture.

Topological rigidity of the first Betti number and Ricci flow smoothing

Abstract: The infranil fiber bundle is a typical structure appeared in the collapsing geometry with bounded sectional curvature. In this talk, I will discuss a topological condition on the first Betti numbers that guarantees a torus fiber bundle structure (a special type of infranil fiber bundle) for collapsing manifolds with only Ricci curvature bounded below. The main technique applied here is smoothing by Ricci flows. This covers my joint with Bing Wang.

Silvan Bernklau (Universität Jena)

The spectral mapping theorem for C0-semigroups

Abstract: Two known proofs of the spectral mapping theorem for eventually norm continuous semigroups are presented, one exploiting individual properties of subcomponents of the spectrum and one relying on a representation of the spectrum in abelian Banach algebras.
