Abstract: There are various finitness results proved in comparison geometry. Gromov's compactness theorem is one that states that the collection of manifolds with Ricci curvature bounded from below, and diameter bounded from above is precompact in a suitable topology. One consequence of this is that there are only finitely many homeomorphism types represented in this class. Since this space is only precompact, it is natural to study limits in this space. The limiting objects are examples of Alexandrov spaces. In this talk, I'll describe work in progress (joint with V. Kapovitch) about the structure of these spaces. In particular, it appears that it may be possible to use gauge theory to say something aboutcertain Alexandrov spaces.
