Dimensional reduction and the long-time behavior of Ricci flowJohn Lott (1) University of California, Berkeley, USA
If g(t) is a three-dimensional Ricci flow solution, with sectional curvatures that are O(t−1) and diameter that is O(t1/2), then the pullback Ricci flow solution on the universal cover approaches a homogeneous expanding soliton.
Keywords: Ricci flow, geometrization
