The Fundamental Groups of Manifolds with Nonnegative Ricci Curvature


This seminar will focus on Milnor's 1968 conjecture regarding fundamental groups of complete manifolds with nonnegative Ricci curvature. We will outline 60 years of progress towards its resolution and present a recent counterexample discovered in collaboration with Aaron Naber and Daniele Semola.
