Abstract: Affine manifolds are spaces equipped with a connection (not necessarily Riemannian). Therefore, even in the absence of a metric, they also have some fundamental geometric properties---such as curvature tensors, (steady) Ricci solitons, affine Killing vectors, geodesics---which are currently under study. In particular, geodesic completeness of affine manifolds is still an open problem. In this seminar I will describe our recent studies on the geodesic completeness of affine two-dimensional manifolds.
