Description:

I intend to discuss and survey finiteness and infiniteness results for Riemannian manifolds with curvature bounds and, more generally, Alexandrov spaces , along with some of their applications inside and outside Riemannian geometry. The underlying concepts and techniques involve among others tools from comparison geometry, convergence of manifolds and metric spaces and Cheeger-Fukaya-Gromov collapsing theory, and I shall include primers on these topics as well.
