"An Introduction to the Bochner Technique on Riemannian Manifolds"
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider one of the most important
techniques in modern Riemannian geometry known as the Bochner Technique. We obtain some of the classical theorems Bochner proved about obstructions to the existence of Killing fields and harmonic 1-forms. Furthermore, we explain an extension of the technique to differential forms.
Tea and cookies will be served before the seminar.
