Curvature and finite domination

- Mathematics
- 1996

Upper bounds obtained by Gromov on the Betti numbers of cer- tain closed Riemannian manifolds are shown to be upper bounds on the min- imum number of cells in CW-spaces dominating such manifolds. In…

Laplacian cut-offs, porous and fast diffusion on manifolds and other applications

- Mathematics
- 2016

We construct exhaustion and cut-off functions with controlled gradient and Laplacian on manifolds with Ricci curvature bounded from below by a (possibly unbounded) nonpositive function of the…

Volume growth, curvature decay, and critical metrics

- Mathematics, Economics
- 2006

We make some improvements to our previous results in [TV05a] and [TV05b]. First, we prove a version of our volume growth theorem which does not require any assumption on the first Betti number.…

A volume comparison theorem for manifolds with asymptotically nonnegative curvature and its applications

- Mathematics
- 1994

where dpo is the distance to Po. This class was first studied by U. Abresch ([AbI], [Ab2]). Because of the decay condition on the curvature (faster than quadratic), we expect the class of manifolds…

COMPARISON THEOREMS FOR MANIFOLDS WITH RADIAL CURVATURE BOUNDED

- Mathematics
- 2011

This is the flrst draft of our recent work [1l] on the Bishop-Gromov volume comparison theorem and tl"re Toponogov comparison theorem for manifolds with the ra,dial curva,ture bounded below. The…

Toponogov's Theorem and Applications

- Mathematics
- 2004

These notes have been prepared for a series of lectures given at the College on Diierential Geometry at Trieste in the Fall of 1989. The lectures center around To-ponogov's triangle comparison…

Asymptotically Extrinsic Tamed Submanifolds

- Mathematics
- 2015

We study, from the extrinsic point of view, the structure at infinity of open submanifolds, $$\varphi :M^m \hookrightarrow \mathbb {M}^{n}(\kappa )$$φ:Mm↪Mn(κ) isometrically immersed in the real…

A Genealogy of Noncompact Manifolds of Nonnegative Curvature: history and Logic

- Mathematics
- 1997

This article presents an approach to the theory of open manifolds of nonnegative sectional curvature via the calculus of nonsmooth functions. This analytical approach makes possible a very compact…

Total curvatures of model surfaces control topology of complete open manifolds with radial curvature bounded below. II

- Mathematics
- 2010

We prove, as our main theorem, the finiteness of topological type of a complete open Riemannian manifold M with a base point p ∈ M whose radial curvature at p is bounded from below by that of a…
