4. Manifolds of Cohomogeneity-one and Polar Actions

    1. Problem 4.1.

      Study the existence and non-existence of metrics with non-negative curvature on manifolds of cohomogeneity-one.
        • Problem 4.2.

          Find cohomogeneity-one manifolds with “interesting” topology, in particular not homeomorphic to a symmetric space. Study curvature properties of these manifolds.
            • Problem 4.3.

              Classify cohomogeneity-one manifolds with $\sec \geq 0$ and at least one totally geodesic principal orbit.
                • Problem 4.4.

                  Compute topological invariants of cohomogeneity-one manifolds. Classify topologically the new candidates for positive curvature.
                    • Problem 4.5.

                      Study the existence of Einstein metrics on manifolds of cohomogeneity-one.
                        • Problem 4.6.

                          Suppose $M$ is a polar manifold with $\sec > 0$. Must $M$ be diffeomorphic to a compact rank-one symmetric space?
                            • Problem 4.7.

                              Suppose $\Sigma \subset M^n$ is the section of a polar action. If $\Sigma$ is rationally elliptic, must $M^n$ be rationally elliptic?
