We find an upper bound on the volume of balls in a Riemannian manifold $X$ somewhat stronger (i.e. smaller) than that obtained by comparing to the hyperbolic space of equal dimension and Ricci quadratic from agreeing with the minimum value achieved on $X$. The new idea is a method, “coefficient...   More >
