Abstract:

There is a well-known technique due to Schoen-Yau from the late 70s which uses (stable) minimal hypersurfaces to determine whether or not a (closed) manifold supports a Riemannian metric with positive scalar curvature. In this talk, we describe a version of this technique for manifolds with boundary and discuss how it can be used to study bordisms of positive scalar curvature metrics.
