TITLEThe Ricci Flow - a Chronological Survey and New Volume Estimates

ABSTRACT The Ricci flow is a parabolic partial differential equation of the metric tensor defined on a given Riemannian manifold. It is presumed that the flow can deform the manifold into a better look, so that we may detect the topology of the underlying manifold. I will present historical results in this field from the perspective of Poincaré conjecture. At last, I will show you my recent discovery.
