Abstract:

Manifolds of type r have played an important role in various different areas of differential geometry. Their role is described in the areas of positive and non-negative sectional curvature, positive Ricci curvature and Einstein manifolds. A homeomorphism and diffeomorphism classification of manifolds of type r has been studied since 1991. In my talk, new versions of the classification of manifolds of type r are proven.
