Planarity and the mean curvature flow of pinched submanifolds in higher codimensionNaff, Keaton January 2021 (has links)
In this thesis, we explore the role of planarity in mean curvature flow in higher codimension and investigate its implications for singularity formation in a certain class of flows. In Chapter 1, we show that the blowups of compact 𝑛dimensional solutions to mean curvature flow in ℝⁿ initially satisfying the pinching condition 𝐴² < c 𝐻² for a suitable constant c = c(𝑛) must be codimension one. We do this by establishing a new a priori estimate via a maximum principle argument.
In Chapter 2, we consider ancient solutions to the mean curvature flow in ℝⁿ⁺¹ (𝑛 ≥ 3) that are weakly convex, uniformly twoconvex, and satisfy derivative estimates ∇𝐴 ≤ 𝛾1 𝐻², ∇² 𝐴 \leq 𝛾2 𝐻³. We show that such solutions are noncollapsed. The proof is an adaptation of the foundational work of Huisken and Sinestrari on the flow of twoconvex hypersurfaces. As an application, in arbitrary codimension, we classify the singularity models of compact 𝑛dimensional (𝑛 ≥ 5) solutions to the mean curvature flow in ℝⁿ that satisfy the pinching condition 𝐴² < c 𝐻² for c = min {1/𝑛2, 3(𝑛+1)/2𝑛(𝑛+2)}. Using recent work of Brendle and Choi, together with the estimate of Chapter 1, we conclude that any blowup model at the first singular time must be a codimension one shrinking sphere, shrinking cylinder, or translating bowl soliton.
Finally, in Chapters 3 and 4, we prove a canonical neighborhood theorem for the mean curvature flow of compact 𝑛dimensional submanifolds in ℝⁿ (𝑛 ≥ 5) satisfying a pinching condition 𝐴² < c 𝐻² for $c = min {1/𝑛2, 3(𝑛+1)/2𝑛(𝑛+2)}. We first discuss, in some detail, a wellknown compactness theorem of the mean curvature flow. Then, adapting an argument of Perelman and using the conclusions of Chapter 2, we characterize regions of high curvature in the pinched solutions of the mean curvature flow under consideration.

DonaldsonThomas theory for CalabiYau fourfolds.January 2013 (has links)
令X 為個帶有凱勒形式(Kähler form ω) 以及全純四形式( holomorphic four form Ω )的四維緊致卡拉比丘空間(CalabiYau manifolds) 。在一些假設條件下，通過研究Donaldson Thomas方程所決定的模空間，我們定義了四維DonaldsonThomas不變量。我們也對四維局部卡拉比丘空間(local CalabiYau fourfolds) 定義了四維DonaldsonThomas 不變量，並且將之聯繫到三維Fano空間的Donaldson Thomas 不變量。在一些情況下，我們還研究了DT/GW不變量對應。最后，我們在模空間光滑時計算了一些四維Donaldson Thomas不變量。 / Let X be a complex fourdimensional compact CalabiYau manifold equipped with a Kahler form ω and a holomorphic fourform Ω. Under certain assumptions, we de ne DonaldsonThomas type deformation invariants by studying the moduli space of the solutions of DonaldsonThomas equations on the given CalabiYau manifold. We also study sheaves counting on local CalabiYau fourfolds. We relate the sheaves countings over X = KY with the Donaldson Thomas invariants for the associated compact threefold Y . In some specialcases, we prove the DT/GW correspondence for X. Finally, we compute the DonaldsonThomas invariants of certain CalabiYau fourfolds when the moduli spaces are smooth. / Detailed summary in vernacular field only. / Cao, Yalong. / Thesis (M.Phil.)Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2013. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 100105). / Abstracts also in Chinese. / Chapter 1  Introduction  p.6 / Chapter 2  The *4 operator  p.18 / Chapter 2.1  The *4 operator for bundles  p.18 / Chapter 2.2  The *4 operator for general coherent sheaves  p.20 / Chapter 3  Local Kuranishi structure of DT₄ moduli spaces  p.22 / Chapter 4  Compactification of DT₄ moduli spaces  p.34 / Chapter 4.1  Stable bundles compactification of DT₄ moduli spaces  p.34 / Chapter 4.2  Attempted general compactification of DT₄ moduli spaces  p.36 / Chapter 5  Virtual cycle construction  p.39 / Chapter 5.1  Virtual cycle construction for DT₄ moduli spaces  p.40 / Chapter 5.2  Virtual cycle construction for generalized DT₄ moduli spaces  p.48 / Chapter 6  DT4 invariants for compactly supported sheaves on local CY₄  p.52 / Chapter 6.1  The case of X = KY  p.52 / Chapter 6.2  The case of X = T*S  p.57 / Chapter 7  DT₄ invariants on toric CY₄ via localization  p.66 / Chapter 8  Computational examples  p.70 / Chapter 8.1  DT₄=GW correspondence in some special cases  p.71 / Chapter 8.1.1  The case of Hol(X) = SU(4)  p.72 / Chapter 8.1.2  The case of Hol(X) = Sp(2)  p.77 / Chapter 8.2  Some remarks on cosection localizations for hyperkähler fourfolds  p.79 / Chapter 8.3  LiQin's examples  p.80 / Chapter 8.4  Moduli space of ideal sheaves of one point  p.83 / Chapter 9  Appendix  p.85 / Chapter 9.1  Local Kuranishi models of Mc°  p.85 / Chapter 9.2  Some remarks on the orientability of the determinant line bundles on the (generalized) DT₄ moduli spaces  p.87 / Chapter 9.3  SeidelThomas twists  p.90 / Chapter 9.4  A quiver representation of Mc  p.92

Hyperkähler and quaternionic Kähler geometrySwann, Andrew F. January 1990 (has links)
A quaternionHermitian manifold, of dimension at least 12, with closed fundamental 4form is shown to be quaternionic Kähler. A similar result is proved for 8manifolds. HyperKähler metrics are constructed on the fundamental quaternionic line bundle (with the zerosection removed) of a quaternionic Kähler manifold (indefinite if the scalar curvature is negative). This construction is compatible with the quaternionic Kähler and hyperKähier quotient constructions and allows quaternionic Kähler geometry to be subsumed into the theory of hyperKähler manifolds. It is shown that the hyperKähler metrics that arise admit a certain type of SU(2) action, possess functions which are Kähler potentials for each of the complex structures simultaneously and determine quaternionic Kähler structures via a variant of the moment map construction. Quaternionic Kähler metrics are also constructed on the fundamental quaternionic line bundle and a twistor space analogy leads to a construction of hyperKähler metrics with circle actions on complex line bundles over KählerEinstein (complex) contact manifolds. Nilpotent orbits in a complex semisimple Lie algebra, with the hyperKähler metrics defined by Kronheimer, are shown to give rise to quaternionic Kähler metrics and various examples of these metrics are identified. It is shown that any quaternionic Kähler manifold with positive scalar curvature and sufficiently large isometry group may be embedded in one of these manifolds. The twistor space structure of the projectivised nilpotent orbits is studied.
