Title: Distance sets on Riemannian surfaces

Speaker: Yakun Xi

Bio: Yakun Xi is a harmonic analyst at School of Mathematical Sciences, Zhejiang University. In 2017, he received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, advised by Prof. Christopher D. Sogge. He worked as a visiting assistant professor at University of Rochester from 2017 to 2020, and joined Zhejiang University in 2020.

Abstract:  We discuss the generalization of the Falconer distance problem to the Riemannian setting. In particular, we extend some recent results in Euclidean space to the Riemannian case.
