Abstract: Ricci flow on surfaces with conic singularities presents several analytic and geometric difficulties, ranging from nonuniqueness of the flow to a somewhat complicated convergence theory. I will describe how to resolve these issues for surfaces with cone angles less than $2pi$. (joint with Rubinstein and Sesum).
