"The length of the shortest closed geodesic and related problems"

Abstract: How long can be the shortest closed geodesic on a Riemannian manifold? We will present our results obtained in collaboration with Regina Rotman on this and similar problems involving minimal geodesic nets, minimal surfaces, etc.

Light refreshments will be served in the faculty lounge at 3:30.
