Ken Richardson will speak on “Analysis on Complete Flat Manifolds and Laplace Spectrum” at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, November 29 in TUC 352.
Abstract: Charalambous and Lu posted a paper recently on the spectrum of the Laplacian on degree k differential forms on a flat noncompact manifold. We first describe the results of Cheeger and Gromoll on the classification of flat manifolds, and then discuss the various known results about the spectrum of the Laplacian on the set of differential forms on a noncompact manifold.
The Geometry and Geometric Analysis (GAGA) Seminar is an opportunity for geometers, topologists, and others from TCU and UT Arlington to learn about new topics of mutual interest. GAGA meets most weeks during the school year.
