Title: Pinched submanifolds of the sphere
Abstract: I will present a topological classification of (high codimension) submanifolds of the sphere satisfying a certain natural extrinsic curvature pinching condition. The proof uses (high codimension) mean curvature flow with surgery. The result is sharp in high dimensions due to the Clifford hypersurfaces. This work is joint with Stephen Lynch and Huy The Nguyen.
