Ricci flow

- A significant 2-dimensional example is the , which is given by the metric ( * dx * 2 * dy * 2)/( * e * 4 * t * * x * 2 * y * 2) on the Euclidean plane. Although this metric shrinks under the Ricci flow, its geometry remains the same. Such solutions are called steady Ricci solitons. An example of a 3-dimensional steady Ricci soliton is the "Bryant soliton", which is rotationally symmetric, has positive curvature, and is obtained by solving a system of ordinary differential equations.
