Abstract:

We show how to lift positive Ricci and almost non-negative curvatures from an orbit space $M/G$ to the corresponding $G$-manifold, $M$. We apply the results to get new examples of Riemannian manifolds that satisfy both curvature conditions simultaneously.

This is joint work with Fred Wilhelm.
