Contrasting various notions of convergence in geometric analysis

Brian Allen and Christina Sormani

Vol. 303 (2019), No. 1, 1–46

We explore the distinctions between Lp convergence of metric tensors on a fixed Riemannian manifold versus Gromov–Hausdorff, uniform, and intrinsic flat convergence of the corresponding sequence of metric spaces. We provide a number of examples which demonstrate these notions of convergence do not agree even for two dimensional warped product manifolds with warping functions converging in the Lp sense. We then prove a theorem which requires Lp bounds from above and C0 bounds from below on the warping functions to obtain enough control for all these limits to agree.
