Abstract: The min-max width of a Riemannian three-sphere, as defined by Simon and Smith, is a geometric invariant that measures the tightest way of sweeping out the three-sphere by two-spheres. In this talk, we will discuss the relations between the min-max width and the volume of Riemannian three-spheres.
