TITLE: Geometric flows of G_2 and Spin(7)-structures

ABSTRACT: We will discuss a family of flows of G_2-structures on seven dimensional Riemannian manifolds. These flows are negative gradient flows of natural energy functionals involving various torsion components of G_2-structures. We will prove short-time existence and uniqueness of solutions to the flows and a priori estimates for some specific flows in the family. We will discuss analogous flows of Spin(7)-structures. This talk is based on arXiv:2311.05516 (joint work with P. Gianniotis and S. Karigiannis) and arXiv:2404.00870.
