VOL. 39 | 2001 The heat-flow method in contact geometry
Robert Gulliver

Editor(s) Andrew Hassell, Alexander Isaev, Adam Sikora

Abstract

Contact geometry treats such questions as the existence and classification of contact structures on manifolds of odd dimension and specified topological structure. See inequality (1) below. The geometric/analytic approach treated in this report introduces parabolic systems of partial differential equations (PDEs) in a way which complements the more algebraic methods, which until now are better known in contact geometry.
