I just read the latest Scientific American and they have an article about the proof of the Poincaré conjecture. Apparently the proof uses a modified (an extra element) Ricci flow and then the article says that the modification to the Ricci flow pops up in Super String Theory .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does this relate to the Calabi-Yau manifolds and their possible transformations? How? Is it relevant to String Theory?
