Isotropic curvature and the Ricci flow
In this paper, we study the Ricci flow on higher dimensional compact manifolds. We prove that nonnegative isotropic curvature is preserved by the Ricci flow in dimensions greater than or equal to four. In order to do so, we introduce a new technique to prove that curvature functions defined on the orthonormal frame bundle are preserved by the Ricci flow. At a minimum of such a function, we compute the first and second derivatives in the frame bundle. Using an algebraic construction, we can use...[Show more]
