Current ProjectsEXC 2044 - B1: Smooth, singular and rigid spaces in geometry Many interesting classes of Riemannian manifolds are precompact in the Gromov-Hausdorfftopology. The closure of such a class usually contains singular metric spaces. Understanding thephenomena that occur when passing from the smooth to the singular object is often a first step toprove structure and finiteness results. In some instances one knows or expects to define a smoothRicci flow coming out of the singular objects. If one were to establishe uniqueness of the flow, thedifferentiable stability conjecture would follow. If a dimension drop occurs from the smooth to thesingular object, one often knows or expects that the collapse happens along singular Riemannianfoliations or orbits of isometric group actions.

Rigidity aspects of isometric group actions and singular foliations are another focus in this project.For example, we plan to establish rigidity of quasi-isometries of CAT(0) spaces, as well as rigidity oflimits of Type III Ricci flow solutions and of positively curved manifolds with low-dimensional torusactions.We will also investigate area-minimising hypersurfaces by means of a canonical conformal completionof the hypersurface away from its singular set. online
EXC 2044 - C4: Geometry-based modelling, approximation, and reduction In mathematical modelling and its application to the sciences, the notion of geometry enters in multiple related but different flavours: the geometry of the underlying space (in which e.g. data may be given), the geometry of patterns (as observed in experiments or solutions of corresponding mathematical models), or the geometry of domains (on which PDEs and their approximations act). We will develop analytical and numerical tools to understand, utilise and control geometry, also touching upon dynamically changing geometries and structural connections between different mathematical concepts, such as PDE solution manifolds, analysis of pattern formation, and geometry. online
