Differential Geometry and Topology

course: Asymptotically symmetric Einstein manifolds

speaker: Olivier Biquard (Université de Strasbourg)

abstract: 1. Asymptotically symmetric Einstein manifolds. I shall give an introduction to the subject, focusing on the correspondence between Einstein metrics and their conformal boundaries.

2. A new eta invariant for CR 3-manifolds. I apply ideas from the correspondence conformal metricsEinstein metrics to define a new invariant for strictly pseudoconvex CR 3-manifolds (joint work with Marc Herzlich).

3. Selfduality. I shall explain results characterizing boundaries of selfdual Einstein metrics.
