"Decomposition of curvature tensor for metrics with torsion, continued"Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, June 16, 2021 — 11:00 AM EDT

Spiro Karigiannis, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

Last time we reviewed the classical decomposition of the Riemann curvature tensor into scalar, traceless Ricci, and Weyl curvature. This time we will examine special features in dimensions 3 and 4. Then I will consider the more general case of a metric compatible connection with torsion, and see how this decomposition generalizes.
