We give a characterization of those Alexandrov spaces admitting a cohomogeneity one action of a compact connected Lie group $G$ for which the action is Cohen--Macaulay. This generalizes a similar result for manifolds to the singular setting of Alexandrov spaces where, in contrast to the manifold case, we find several actions which are not Cohen--Macaulay. In fact, we present results in a slightly more general context. We extend the methods in this field by a conceptual approach on equivariant… 
Torus Actions on Alexandrov 4-Spaces
We obtain an equivariant classification for orientable, closed, four-dimensional Alexandrov spaces admitting an isometric torus action. This generalizes the equivariant classification of Orlik and

In this survey article we exemplarily illustrate implications of curvature assumptions on the topology of the underlying manifold. We shall mainly focus on sectional curvature and three different


Cohomogeneity one Alexandrov spaces
We obtain a structure theorem for closed, cohomogeneity one Alexandrov spaces and we classify closed, cohomogeneity one Alexandrov spaces in dimensions 3 and 4. As a corollary we obtain the
Cohomogeneity one Alexandrov spaces in low dimensions
Alexandrov spaces are complete length spaces with a lower curvature bound in the triangle comparison sense. When they are equipped with an effective isometric action of a compact Lie group with
On the equivariant cohomology of hyperpolar actions on symmetric spaces
We show that the equivariant cohomology of any hyperpolar action of a compact and connected Lie group on a symmetric space of compact type is a Cohen-Macaulay ring. This generalizes some results
Isometry groups of Alexandrov spaces
Let X be an Alexandrov space (with curvature bounded below). We determine the maximal dimension of the isometry group Isom(X) of X and show that X is isometric to a Riemannian manifold, provided the

The equivariant cohomology ring of a cohomogeneity-one action
We compute the rational Borel equivariant cohomology ring of a cohomogeneity-one action of a compact Lie group.
Characteristic Classes
Let (P,M,G) be a principle fibre bundle over M with group G, connection ω and quotient map π. Recall that for all p ∈ P the Lie algebra G is identified with VpP := Kerπp∗ via the derivative of lp : G
Blow-up of semilinear PDE's at the critical dimension. A probabilistic approach
We present a probabilistic approach which proves blow-up of solutions of the Fujita equation ∂w/∂t = -(-Δ) α/2 w + w 1+β in the critical dimension d = α/β. By using the Feynman-Kac representation
Revisiting homogeneous spaces with positive curvature
As was recently observed by M. Xu and J. Wolf, there is a gap in Berard Bergery's classification of odd dimensional positively curved homogeneous spaces. Since this classification has been used in
