The positivity of Ricci curvature is also preserved along the Kähler-Ricci flow with 2-non-negative traceless bisectional curvature. As a corollary, the Kähler-Ricci flow with 2-non-negative traceless bisectional curvature will converge to a Kähler-Ricci soliton in the sense The quadrupole moment tensor is defined as a traceless rank-two tensor (3x3 matrix). As Dr. Slavchov explained,it is also symmetric, which means that only 5 of all 9 components are independent. It’s fairly hard to find a “physical” meaning to the trace of a matrix, instead I’ll tell you why it’s an important tool in linear algebra. One properties that makes the trace awesome is this elementary result: [math]\operatorname{tr}(AB)=\operato It was proved by H. Chen earlier that the property of the sum of any two eigenvalues of the curvature operator is positive is preserved under the ricci flow in all dimensional. By a recent result of Phong-Sturm, a similar notion of positive 2-traceless bisectional curvature positive is preserved on complex surface. We prove that this holds in all dimensional Kähler manifold. Moreover, the When switching to traceless multipoles we introduce constraints for each index pair, that is 1 2 n(n 1) constraints. The e ective number of traceless multipoles is 2n + 1. Trond Saue (LCPQ, Toulouse) Electric and magnetic multipoles Virginia Tech 2017 8 / 22

## electronic-state population operator in any system can be exactly rewritten as a sum of a traceless operator and the identity operator. We show that by treating the latter at a quantum level instead of using the mapping approach, the accuracy of traditional quasiclassical dynamics methods can be drastically improved, without changes to their
