The working group on manifolds with lower bounds on Ricci curvature will continue on Wednesday 17th Feb, again 11h-13h in the Salle de Profs (9th floor, building NO). We finally turn to Riemannian geometry. I (Joel) will talk about the Bochner formula, the (local) Laplacian comparison theorem, the Bishop-Gromov volume comparison theorem and finally Gromov’s precompactness theorem for Riemannian manifolds with lower bounds on Ricci curvature.

The following people have kindly agreed to give talks:

- 24th Feb, Bruno Premoselli
- 2nd March, Ben Sibley
- 9th March, Michael Khanevsky

That still leaves three slots free, so don’t hesitate, volunteer today! Hope to see you all at the next talk.
