Hello, I'm curious to what books etc. one could use to understand the basics of Ricci flow, what areas of math are needed and so? What areas should one specialize in? See it as a roadmap to ...
This may be very naive, since I just started trying to learn Ricci flow; but I couldn't really find any answer after looking for a while in all the textbooks and lecture notes I found online... ...
I'm trying to understand how one can define the Ricci flow equation. First you have to parametrized the set of all Riemannian metrics. Then you have to define the derivative on this parametrized ...
