Let X be a Hadamard manifold with pinched negative curvature −b ≤ κ ≤ −1. Suppose Σ ⊆ X is a totally geodesic, codimension-1 submanifold and consider the geodesic flow Φνt on X generated by a unit normal vector field ν on Σ. We say the normal growth exponent of Σ in X is at most β if lim t→±∞ ‖dΦνt ‖∞ eβ|t| < ∞, where ‖dΦνt ‖∞ is the supremum of the operator norm of dΦ ν t over all points of Σ. We show that if Σ is bi-Lipschitz to hyperbolic n-space H and the normal growth exponent is at most 1… Expand

Let M be a complete (connected) Riemannian manifold having finite volume and whose sectional curvatures lie in the interval [c(1), c(2)] with -infinity < c(1)[unk]c(2) < 0. Then any proper homotopyExpand
The entropy formula for the Ricci flow and its geometric applications
We present a monotonic expression for the Ricci flow, valid in all dimensions and without curvature assumptions. It is interpreted as an entropy for a certain canonical ensemble. Several geometricExpand
A topological analogue of Mostow’s rigidity theorem
Three types of manifolds, spherical, fiat, and hyperbolic, are paradigms of geometric behavior. These are the Riemannian manifolds of constant positive, zero, and negative sectional curvatures,Expand
A boundary criterion for cubulation
We give a criterion in terms of the boundary for the existence of a proper cocompact action of a word-hyperbolic group on a ${\rm CAT}(0)$ cube complex. We describe applications towards lattices andExpand

Convex projective structures on Gromov-Thurston manifolds
We consider Gromov–Thurston examples of negatively curved n-manifolds which do not admit metrics of constant sectional curvature. We show that for each n ≥ 4 some of the Gromov–Thurston manifoldsExpand
