Lunches: We will have an (optional) geometry seminar lunch on Wednesdays from 12 to 1, in the common area on the fourth floor.

Background material wish list: This link leads to a document where people can record their wishes for seminars or mini-lectures on background material in differential geometry. Background material wish list
Plans for the first few classes: For the first two weeks, we
will study a paper all together, and I will try to teach ways to study
it and present it. The paper we will work with is about Sobolev
inequalities on submanifolds of Euclidean space.
You can get a copy of the paper here: Sobolev inequalities on submanifolds of Euclidean space. (You might need to be at an MIT computer. From this page, click on Get PDF on the right-hand side.)
For class on Friday, start to have a look at the paper. Here
is a very short reading guide about what to be looking for on this
first reading: reading guide.
