Open archived version from archive - Replacing the Lower Curvature Bound in Toponogov's Comparison Theorem by a Weaker Condition — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

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 is joint work with Yutaka Ikeda Document Actions iCalendar vCalendar Send
