SAGE: Symposia on Analysis of Geometric Evolution


SAGE is the name of a sequence of five annual workshops designed to integrate research, graduate education, and undergraduate outreach. Each workshop focuses on geometric evolution equations and their applications.


The fourth SAGE workshop will take place September 1-3, 2010 at the University of Texas at Austin. Its topics will be

Optimal Transport and Riemannian Geometry:

Bakry-Emery curvature, Ma-Trudinger-Wang curvature, and Applications to Ricci Flow
