Abstract: 

 

 Our goal is to understand the topology of particular subspaces of the space of metrics on a given smooth manifold.  In this talk, we show that the homotopy type of the space of metrics with positive p-curvature (a generalization of scalar curvature) is invariant under surgery in the proper codimension.
