**Laufzeit:** 2 Jahre (2007-2009)

**Zusammenfassung**: This project is located around
the investigation of Riemannian metrics of positive scalar curvature
on smooth manifolds. Existence, obstructions and the space
of positive scalar curvature metrics are particular questions
in this context. Special attention will be paid to
the interaction of methods from differential geometry, global
analysis, algebraic topology and coarse geometry. The positive
scalar curvature question will also be regarded as a motivation
to formulate and investigate problems
that are of interest in these specific areas independently from the positive
scalar curvature question.
