Generalized Ricci flow, I: Higher-derivative estimates for compact manifolds

Yi Li

Vol. 5 (2012), No. 4, 747–775
Abstract

We consider a generalized Ricci flow with a given (not necessarily closed) three-form and establish higher-derivative estimates for compact manifolds. As an application, we prove the compactness theorem for this generalized Ricci flow. Similar results still hold for a more generalized Ricci flow.
