DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jan-Bernhard Kordaß (Karlsruhe Institute of Technol
ogy (KIT))\nWe will introduce spaces of riemannian metrics on a smooth man
ifold satisfying a curvature condition given by a subset in the space of a
lgebraic curvature operators. Provided this condition is surgery stable\,
which is a notion based on the work of S. Hoelzel guaranteeing the conditi
on can be preserved under surgeries of a certain codimension\, we can gene
ralize several theorems from positive scalar curvature geometry to this se
tting. Notably\, we will comment on a generalization of a theorem of V. Ch
ernysh on the homotopy type of the space of psc metrics and point to cases
where we can distinguish connected components using invariants from spin
geometry.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit.edu/event/421/contributions/4809/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Johannes Ebert ()\nFor a closed\, simply connected $
d$-dimensional manifold spin $M$\, we study the action of the (spin) diffe
omorphism group of $M$ on the space $\\mathcal{R}^+ (M)$ of psc metrics on
$M$. Our main result is that the homotopy class of the map $f^*: \\mathca
l{R}^+ (M) \\to \\mathcal{R}^+ (M)$ only depends on the cobordism class in
$\\Omega^{\\mathrm{Spin}}_{d+1}$ of the mapping torus of $f$. When proper
ly formulated\, the same result is true for manifolds with nontrivial fund
amental group.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit.edu/event/421/contributions/4808/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: David Wraith ()\nTaking as our starting point the cl
assic paper of Eells and\nSampson\, we use harmonic maps as a tool to inve
stigate spaces and moduli spaces of Ricci non-negative metrics\, and also
to study concordances between such metrics. In the first case\, among othe
r things\, we recover some recent results of Tuschmann and Wiemeler. In th
e second case\, we uncover an interrelationship between concordance\, isot
opy and isometry for Ricci non-negative metrics\, which stands in contrast
to the situation for positive scalar curvature.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: David González Álvaro (University of Fribourg)\nTh
e goal of this talk is to discuss the following result: for a manifold hom
otopy equivalent to $RP^5$\, the moduli space of metrics with non-negative
sectional (resp. with positive Ricci) curvature has infinitely many path
connected components. The proof involves various elements such as Brieskor
n spheres\, Grove-Ziller metrics\, reduced eta-invariants and fixed point
formulas. This is joint work with Anand Dessai.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.k

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sebastian Goette (University of Freiburg)\nJoyce’s
orbifold construction and the twisted connected sums by Kovalev and Corti
-Haskins-Nordström-Pacini provide many examples of compact Riemannian 7-m
anifolds with holonomy $G_2$. We would like to use this wealth of examples
to guess further properties of $G_2$-manifolds and to find obstructions a
gainst holonomy $G_2$\, taking into account the underlying topological $G_
2$-structures.\n\nThe Crowley-Nordström $\\nu$-invariant distinguishes to
pological $G_2$-structures. It vanishes for all twisted connected sums. By
adding an extra twist to this construction\, we show that the $\\nu$-inva
riant can assume all of its 48 possible values. This shows that $G_2$-bord
ism presents no obstruction against holonomy $G_2$. We also exhibit exampl
es of 7-manifolds with disconnected $G_2$-moduli space. Our computation of
the $\\nu$-invariants involves integration of the Bismuth-Cheeger $\\eta$
-forms for families of tori\, which can be done either by elementary hyper
bolic geometry\, or using modular properties of the Dedekind $\\eta$-funct
ion.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit.edu/event/421/contributions/4705/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Michael Wiemeler (WWU Münster)\nThe classification
of positively (sectional) curved manifolds is a long standing open problem
in Riemannian geometry. So far it was a successful approach to consider t
he problem under the extra assumption of an isometric group action.\n\nIn
this talk I will report on recent joint work with Lee Kennard and Burkhard
Wilking in this direction. Among other things we show the following: Let
$M$ be a simply connected positively curved $n$-dimensional manifold with
$H^{odd} M\,\\mathbb{Q})=0$ and an isometric $T^8$-action. Then the ration
al cohomology ring of $M$ is isomorphic to the rational cohomology of one
of the CROSSes $S^n$\, $\\mathbb{C} P^{n/2}$ and $\\mathbb{H} P^{n/4}$.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bernhard Hanke (Augsburg University)\nIn his famous
book on partial differential relations Gromov formulates an exercise conce
rning local deformations of solutions to open partial differential relatio
ns. We will explain the content of this fundamental assertion and sketch a
proof.\n\nWe will illustrate this by various examples\, including the con
struction of $C^{1\,1}$-Riemannian metrics which are positively curved "al
most everywhere" on arbitrary manifolds.\n\nThis is joint work with Christ
ian Bär (Potsdam).\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit.edu/event/421/contributions/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Saskia Roos (University of Potsdam)\nFor a closed\,
connected direct product Riemannian manifold $(M\,g) = (M_1 \\times \\ldot
s \\times M_l\, g_1 + \\ldots + g_l)$ we define its multiconformal class $
[\\![ g ]\\!]$ as the totality $\\lbrace f_1^2 g_1 + \\ldots + f_l^2 g_l \
\rbrace$ of all Riemannian metrics obtained from multiplying the metric $
g_i$ of each factor by a function $f_i^2:M \\rightarrow \\mathbb{R}_+$. In
this talk we discuss how constant scalar curvature metrics in a multiconf
ormal class are related with constant scalar curvature metrics on the fact
ors.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit.edu/event/421/contributions/4696/

on for orbifold singularities. In the talk we discuss such examples and th
eir properties. In particular\, we explain rigidity phenomena of the geode
sic length spectrum and of metrics with all geodesics closed in dimension
two.\n\nhttps://indico.scc.kit.edu/event/421/contributions/4695/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jackson Goodman (University of Pennsylvania)\nWe use
the $\\mathop{Spin}^c$ Dirac operator to generalize a formula of Kreck an
d Stolz for the s invariant of $S^1$ invariant metrics with positive scala
r curvature. We then apply it to show that the moduli spaces of metrics wi
th nonnegative sectional curvature on certain 7-manifolds have infinitely
many path components. These include certain positively curved Eschenburg a
nd Aloff-Wallach spaces. Furthermore\, we use a $\\mathop{Spin}^c$ version
of the s invariant to discuss moduli spaces of metrics of positive scalar
and twisted scalar curvature on $\\mathop{Spin}^c$ manifolds.\n\nhttps://
