    The aim of this article is to offer a brief survey of an interesting, yet accessible line of research in Differential Geometry. A fundamental problem of mathematics is to understand the relationship between the geometry and topology of manifolds. The geometry of a manifold is determined by a Riemannian metric, that is, a smoothly varying inner product on the tangent bundle. Altering the Riemannian metric on a given manifold alters the way in which it curves. It is natural, therefore, to ask to what extent the possible curvatures of a manifold determine and are determined by its topology. Note that all manifolds are assumed to be Riemannian, smooth, complete and without boundary.
