On Perelman’s functional with curvature corrections

Rami Ahmad El-Nabulsi


In recent ten years, there has been much concentration and increased research activities on Hamilton’s Ricci flow evolving on a Riemannian metric and Perelman’s functional. In this paper, we extend Perelman’s functional approach to include logarithmic curvature corrections induced by quantum effects. Many interesting consequences are revealed.
