Abstract: Ricci flow was created and developed over many years by highly original works of Richard Hamilton. By revolutionary works, Grisha Perelman carried out Hamilton's program and proved Thurston's Geometrization Conjecture. In this talk we discuss Ricci flow from an elementary and intuitive perspective, with an emphasis on taking a glimpse at a few things one might hope for in higher dimensions.
