Abstract: 

The classification of Riemannian manifolds with positive and non-negative sectional curvature is a long-standing
problem in Riemannian geometry. In this talk I will summarize recent joint work with Catherine Searle on the
classification of closed, simply-connected, non-negatively curved Riemannian manifolds admitting an isometric,
effective, maximal torus action. This classification has many applications, in particular the Maximal Symmetry
Rank conjecture holds for this class of manifolds.
