We will cover various advanced topics in modern and classic differential geometry and Riemannian geometry, such as prescribed curvature problems, variational problems in geometry, curvature flows, geometric analytical methods, with the precise content depending on the interests of the participants.

Learning outcome
To display knowledge of the course topics and content, at the level of a beginning researcher.

To be able to use the acquired knowledge to perform advanced, state-of-the-art arguments in Riemannian geometry and geometric analysis.

To be able to produce independent proofs in extension of the acquired knowledge.

Teaching and learning methods
4 hours of lectures and 3 hours of exercises for 9 weeks.

Please note that to prepare lectures as a participant in this topics course is a substantial time commitment. So participants should plan their time accordingly.
