The ERC project Comparison and rigidity for scalar curvatureCOMSCAL” aims to gain fundamentally new insights on the geometry of spaces with lower scalar curvature bounds. We combine various tools from different areas such as geometric analysis, global analysis, non-commutative geometry and topology as needed, and will study applications to geometric aspects of mathematical relativity.
