TOPIC I:극소곡면이야기, II: A dichotomy in manifolds of nonnegative Ricci curvature

Abstract

I Title: 극소곡면 이야기
I Abstract: 극소곡면은 넓이를 최소로 갖는 곡면이다. 이 곡면의 여러가지 재미있는 성질을 소개할 것이다.

II Title: A dichotomy in manifolds of nonnegative Ricci curvature
II Abstract: I will first review some old theorems on manifolds of non-negative Ricci curvature: Theorems by Hadamard, Myers, O’Neill, Cheeger-Gromoll, Frankel, Lawson, Petersen-Wilhelm.

Then I’ll prove a new theorem: Let M be a compact Riemannian manifold of nonnegative Ricci curvature and Σ a compact embedded 2-sided minimal hypersurface in M. It is proved that there is a di-chotomy: If Σ does not separate M then Σ is totally geodesic and M \ Σ is isometric to the Riemannian product Σ × (a, b), and if Σ separates M then the map i∗ : π1(Σ) → π1(M) induced by inclusion is surjective.
