By Detlef Gromoll,Gerard Walschap

Riemannian manifolds, really people with optimistic or nonnegative curvature, are constituted of just a handful through metric fibrations or deformations thereof. this article records a few of these structures, lots of that have merely seemed in magazine shape. The emphasis is much less at the fibration itself and extra on how one can use it to both build or comprehend a metric with curvature of mounted sign up a given space.
