 +  
−   +  
−  A closed geodesic on a surface with a Riemannian metric defines a knot in the unit tangent bundle of that surface. Which knots can occur? Given a particular knot type, what is the lowest number of closed geodesics a surface must have if you are allowed to pick the metric on the surface? Curve shortening allows you to define an invariant for each knot type (called the Conley index) which gives some answers to these questions.

−  The Nash embedding theorem states that every Riemannian manifold can be isometrically embedded into some Euclidean space with dimension bound. Isometric means preserving the length of every path. Nash's proof involves sophisticated perturbations of the initial embedding, so not much is known about the geometry of the resulted embedding. In this talk, using the eigenfunctions of the Laplacian operator, we construct canonical isometric embeddings of compact Riemannian manifolds into Euclidean spaces, and study the geometry of embedded images. They turn out to have large mean curvature (intuitively, very bumpy), but the extent of oscillation is about the same at every point. This is a joint work with Xiaowei Wang.

−  "\epsilonRegularity for 4dimensional shrinking Ricci solitons"
 +  
−   +  
−  A central issue in studying uniform behaviors of Riemannian manifolds is to obtain uniform local L^{\infty}bounds of the curvature tensor. For manifolds whose Riemannian metric satisfying certain elliptic equations, e.g. Einstein manifolds and Ricci solitons, local curvature bound are expected when the local energy is sufficiently small. Such estimates, referred to as \epsilonregularity, are usually obtained via Moser iteration arguments, which requires a uniform control of the Sobolev constant. This requirement may fail in many natural situations. In this talk, I will discuss an \epsilonregularity result for 4dimensional shrinking Ricci solitons without a priori control of the Sobolev constant.

−  "A filtration of the Gordian complex via symmetric groups"
 +  
−   +  
−  The Gordian complex is a countable graph whose vertices correspond to knot types and whose edges correspond to pairs of knots that are related by a crossing change in a suitable diagram. For every natural number n, we consider the subgraph of the Gordian complex defined by restricting to the knot types whose fundamental group surjects onto S_n. We will prove that the various inclusion maps from these subgraphs into the Gordian complex are isometric embeddings. From this, we obtain a simple metric filtration of the Gordian complex.
