Abstract

Valuation theory grew out of integral geometry, and studies such geometric quantities as volume, surface area, and their generalizations. Spaces with curvature bounds are geometric objects which are not necessarily smooth, but that retain nevertheless some of the features of smooth spaces. For example convexity/concavity properties of the distance function can be seen as a non-smooth generalization of the smooth notion of curvature of constant sign.
