  • Replacing the Lower Curvature Bound in Toponogov's Comparison Theorem by a Weaker Condition — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
    Contact Name Dr Khan Add event to calendar vCal iCal Toponogov s triangle comparison theorem and its generalizations are important tools for studying the topology of Riemannian manifolds In these theorems one assumes that the curvature of a given manifold is bounded from below by the curvature of some model surface The models are either of constant curvature or in the generalizations rotationally symmetric about some point One concludes that geodesic triangles in the manifold correspond to geodesic triangles in the model surface which have the same corresponding side lengths but smaller corresponding angles In addition a certain rigidity holds whenever there is equality in one of the corresponding angles the geodesic triangle in the surface embeds totally geodesically and isometrically in the manifold In this talk I will discuss a condition relating the geometry of a Riemannian manifold to that of a model surface which is weaker than usual curvature hypothesis in the generalized Toponogov theorems but yet is strong enough to ensure that a geodesic triangle in the manifold has a corresponding triangle in the model with the same corresponding side lengths but smaller corresponding angles In contrast it is interesting that rigidity fails in this setting This

  • Generalizing the Kneser Conjecture — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
    Lab Contact Name Dr Khan Add event to calendar vCal iCal The Kneser Conjecture says that if a closed connected 3 manifold M has π 1 M G 1 G 2 then there exist 3 manifolds M 1 and M 2 such that π 1 M i G i and M M 1 M 2 Hillman has generalized this to 4 manifolds at the expense of introducing stabilizing S 2 S 2 factors to M More precisely if a closed connected 4 manifold M has π 1 M G 1 G 2 then there exist 4 manifolds M 1 and M 2 such that π 1 M i G i and M n S 2 S 2 M 1 M 2 for some nonnegative integer n This talk will review these results and then consider a generalization of these theorems to 3 and 4 manifolds with fundamental groups which are amalgamated free products The 3 dimensional case for amalgamated products has been done by Feustel The talk will end with a discussion of progress made in the case that the amalgamation is over a cyclic group of prime order Document Actions iCalendar vCalendar Send this Print this Subscribe to Talklist
