Title:  A volume bound for orbifold quotients of symmetric spaces

Abstract:   In this talk, H. C. Wang's quantitative study of Zassenhaus neighborhoods will be extended to the exceptional Lie groups. The first application is an improved upper bound for the sectional curvature of a semi-simple Lie group. The second application is a uniform lower volume bound for orbifold quotients of symmetric spaces of non-compact type. This is joint work with M. Wang and G. Wei.
