Lecture Notes For some topics (but not all), I'll upload handwritten lecture notes. Lec. 2, 3 & 4  Basic Riemannian Geometry Lec  Basics of the Ricci Flow Lec  Failure of parabolicity of the Ricci Flow Lec  DeTurck's trick and shorttime existence and uniqueness for the Ricci Flow Lec  Scalar maximum principles Lec  Tensor maximum principles Lec  Ricci pinching estimates Lec  Applications of pinching and gradient estimates Problem sets Problem sets will normally be posted here every Tuesday/Wednesday and discussed in the problem session the following week. They will not be collected or graded but it is highly recommended that you try to attempt all the problems. This will be beneficial to your understanding of the course material.
