The h principle and fluid dynamics

Sunto: In this talk I will explain some interesting connections between some classical problems in fluid dynamics and an iteration technique pioneered by Nash in his famous 1954 paper on the existence of C^1 isometric embeddings.

Min-max Methods in Geometry

Sunto: Min-max methods were first introduced in Geometry by Birkhoff in 1920 and the theory was later expanded by Almgren in the 60’s and Pitts in the 80’s. Recently it has been used by Fernando Marques and myself to prove the Willmore conjecture, the Freedman-He-Wang conjecture, and a old conjecture of Yau in the positive Ricci curvature setting. I will survey these results, talk about new developments, and mention some new directions.
