Title:The associated sphere bundle to a negatively curved bundle.
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Andrey Gogolev, SUNY- Binghamton
Abstract:
Consider a smooth fiber bundle over a compact simply connected manifold. We say that such bundle is negatively curved if the fibers can be equipped with continuously varying metrics of negative curvature. Conjecturally negatively curved bundles are trivial. We use a classical dynamical systems technique to verify a related result: the (fiberwise) associated sphere bundle to a negatively curved bundle is trivial. This work is joint with Tom Farrell.
