Gilles Carron will talk on 11th May at 1.45pm UK time, 2.45pm Belgian time. Gilles’ title is “Rigidity of the Euclidean heat kernel” and his abstract is below.
Rigidity of the Euclidean heat kernel
It is a joint work with David Tewodrose (Bruxelles) https://arxiv.org/abs/1912.10759
I will explain that a metric measure space with Euclidean heat kernel is Euclidean. An almost rigidity result comes then for free, and this can be used to give another proof of Colding’s almost rigidity for complete manifold with non negative Ricci curvature and almost Euclidean growth.
