The normalized second order renormalization group flow on closed surfaces
Pages: 1167 – 1191
We study a normalized version of the second order renormalization group flow on closed Riemannian surfaces. We discuss some general properties of this flow and establish several basic formulas. In particular, we focus on surfaces with zero and positive Euler characteristic.
