Yamabe Lecture

Sun-Yung Alice Chang, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Mathematics at Princeton University, will be giving the 2022-2023 Yamabe Lectures (postponed from 2019-2020) on March 29-30, 2023. The title of the series is “Conformal Geometry on 4-manifolds”. The first talk (Wed March 29, 4pm in Lunt 105)  is subtitled “Study of Chern-Gauss-Bonnet integrand, Q-curvature.” The second talk (Thurs March 30, 4pm in Lunt 105) is subtitled “Conformal filling in of Poincare Einstein manifolds.

The Yamabe Memorial Lecture was initiated jointly by Northwestern University and the University of Minnesota in 1962. At Northwestern, the Yamabe Lectures are given every two years by a prominent mathematician working in a field related to Yamabe’s work.  In the alternate years, the University of Minnesota holds the Yamabe Memorial Symposium.
