Emerging Topics on Scalar Curvature and Convergence

Organizers: Christina Sormani, CUNY and Mikhail Gromov, IHES

Participants: Michael Eichmair, Bernhard Hanke, Lan-Hsuan Huang, Sajjad Lakzian, Yashar Memarian, Pengzi Miao, Raquel Perales, Jacobus Portegies, Rick Schoen, Guofang Wei

Summary: We addressed the fundamental question of defining a notion of generalized nonnegative scalar curvature on a limit space.
