Some relations between curvature and topology via distance functions

Speaker:  Francesca Oronzio - Universit√† degli Studi di Napoli Federico II
  Monday, March 25, 2019 at 1:30 PM Aula L
The aim of the talk is to present proofs of Cartan-Hadamard and Bonnet-Myers theorems based on the analysis of the distance functions on a Riemannian manifold (following a proposal of P. Petersen), alternative to the classical, more geometric proofs.
