I know that the Poincaré conjecture was first proved in dimension ≥ 5, then dimension 4, and finally 3. I'm just curious, does the Ricci flow approach by Perelman shed any light on the high dimension case? Or for some reason one cannot hope for a uniform proof because these dimensions are essentially different?
