  • We introduce a new geometric approach to a manifold equipped with a smooth density function that takes a torsion-free affine connection, as opposed to a weighted measure or Laplacian, as the fundamental object of study. The connection motivates new versions of the volume and Laplacian comparison theorems that are valid for the 1-Bakry-Emery Ricci tensor, a weaker assumption than has previously been considered in the literature. As applications we prove new generalizations of Myers' theorem and… CONTINUE READING
