Abstract: We investigate the low-energy behavior of the gradient flow of the $L^2$ normof the Riemannian curvature on four-manifolds. Specifically, we show long timeexistence and exponential convergence to a metric of constant sectionalcurvature when the initial metric has positive Yamabe constant and smallinitial energy.
