  journal={Revista Matematica Iberoamericana},
We study submetries between Alexandrov spaces and show how some of the usual features of Riemannian submersions fail due to the lack of smoothness.

Structure of Submetries
We investigate the geometric and topological structure of equidistant decompositions of Riemannian manifolds.
Representations whose minimal reduction has a toric identity component
We classify irreducible representations of connected compact Lie groups whose orbit space is isometric to the orbit space of a representation of a finite extension of (positive dimensional) toric
Upper and lower bounds on the filling radius
We give a curvature dependent lower bound for the filling radius of all closed Riemannian manifolds as well as an upper one for manifolds which are the total space of a Riemannian submersion. The


A Metric Characterization of Riemannian Submersions
A map between metric spaces is called a submetry if it mapsballs of radius R around a point onto balls of the sameradius around the image point. We show that when the domain and targetspaces are
Semiconcave Functions in Alexandrov???s Geometry
The following is a compilation of some techniques in Alexandrov's geometry which are directly connected to convexity.
Kirszbraun's Theorem and Metric Spaces of Bounded Curvature
Abstract. We generalize Kirszbraun's extension theorem for Lipschitz maps between (subsets of) euclidean spaces to metric spaces with upper or lower curvature bounds in the sense of A.D. Alexandrov.
Metric foliations and curvature
We prove a rigidity theorem for Riemannian fibrations of flat spaces over compact bases and give a metric classification of compact four-dimensional manifolds of nonnegative curvature that admit

A Duality Theorem for Riemannian Foliations in Nonnegative Sectional Curvature
Using a new type of Jacobi field estimate we will prove a duality theorem for singular Riemannian foliations in complete manifolds of nonnegative sectional curvature.
Open map theorem for metric spaces
An open map theorem for metric spaces is proved and some applications are discussed. The result on the existence of gradient flows of semiconcave functions is generalized to a large class of spaces.

Applications of Quasigeodesics and Gradient Curves
This paper gathers together some applications of quasigeodesic and gradient curves. After a discussion of extremal subsets, we give a proof of the Gluing Theorem for multidimensional Alexandrov
A sufficient condition that a mapping of Riemannian manifolds be a fibre bundle
2. Generalities [2; l]. If xGA, vi, v2(E.Xx, let (vu v2) denote the inner product that defines the Riemannian metric. If a: [0, l]—»A is a curve, let a':t-^a'(t) denote the tangent vector field to a.
