Positive Scalar Curvature and Applications
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
We introduce the idea of curvature, including how it developed historically, and focus on the scalar curvature of a manifold. A major current research topic involves understanding positive scalar curvature. We discuss why this is interesting and how it relates to general relativity.
