We have studied the following :
(1)Study of Yamabe Invariants
We estimated and determined the Yamabe invariant of some positive 3-manifolds, by using the inverse mean curvature flow and families of Green's functions. In especial, we classified completely all 3-manifolds with Yamabe invariant greater than that of RP^3. We also studied the positive Yamabe constants of Riemannian products and the behavior of them under magnifying one factor. We are now studying Aubin's type lemma for the positive Yamabe constants of infinite coverings, with some new results.
(2)Study of Conformal/Affine Geometry and group C^*-algebra
We gave new developments on conformal and projective geometry. In particular, we obtained an interesting varitional characterization of affine connections induced from Einstein metrics. We studied on twisted K-theory and groupoid C^*-algebras, and then proved a generalization of Gromov-Lawson theorem for foliated spaces.
(3)Study on Non-linear Analysis in Geometry
We studied on eigenvalue problem on complete manifolds, discrete groups and valiational problems on mean curvature. We then obtained results on non-existence of eigenvalues on complete manifolds of non-positive curvature, and a fixed-point theorem for discrete-group actions on Hadamard spaces.
