### Does the Volume Ratio of a Geodesic Ball for a Complete Riemannian Manifold tend to the volume of a Unit Ball in Euclidean $n$-space?

I am reading Peter Topping's notes on Ricci flow: on page 99 a statement is made which is needed for his proof of a version of Perelman's no local volume collapse theorem, but I am not sure why it ...

### More general form of Fourier inversion formula

My question begins as follows: Suppose $G$ is a compact (Lie) group and $A$ is a $G$-module, and denote the action of $G$ on $A$ by $\alpha$. Fix $a\in A$ and view
$$
f:g\mapsto \alpha_g(a)
$$
as an $...

### Does $\nabla g=\omega(\cdot) g$ imply $\nabla$ is metric w.r.t a conformal rescaling of $g$?

This is a cross-post.
Let $E$ be a smooth vector bundle over a manifold $M$, where $\text{rank}(E) > 1,\dim M > 1$. Suppose that $E$ is equipped with a metric $g$ and an affine connection $\...
