Shrinking Ricci solitons are self-similar solutions to Hamilton's Ricci flow and natural extensions of Einstein metrics of positive scalar curvature. They are also critical points of a certain functional defined by Perelman. In this talk I will discuss geometry of Ricci solitons, in particular the second variation of Perelman's shrinker entropy and stability question. I will present a joint work with Huai-Dong Cao that gives the full classification of the linear stability of Perelman's entropy on symmetric spaces of compact type.
