Introduction to Morse function and complex

Speaker: Arun Maiti

Date: 19/02/2019

Time and Venue: 9:15-10:15PM, LH-I

Abstract: A Morse function on a Riemannian manifold can be used to study topology of the manifold. In this talk we will see construction of a cellular chain complex known as the Morse complex associated to a Morse function. If time permits we will briefly talk about how geodesics can be studied using Morse theory.
