## Main Question or Discussion Point

I started to read the book "The Poincare Conjecture In Search of The Shape of The Universe."

It is a terrific book that explains the history of Poincare's conjecture in layman terms.

The book changed the way that I visualize mathematics.

I was wondering what is the mathematical background that is needed in order to be able to study and to understand The Ricci Flow?

Appart from advanced calculus, real/complex analysis, PDE, Riemannian Geometry, and Topology. What else is needed?
