Abstract:

We will discuss the Ricci flow on homogeneous 4-manifolds. After listing the classification of these manifolds, I will explain that there are families of initial metrics, such that we can diagonalize them and the Ricci flow preserves the diagonalization. Then we will analyze the long time behavior of these families.
