Abstract

The Lévy-Gromov inequality states that round spheres have the least isoperimetric profile (normalized by total volume) among Riemannian manifolds with a fixed positive lower bound on the Ricci tensor. In this note we study critical metrics corresponding to the Lévy-Gromov inequality and prove that, in two-dimensions, this criticality condition is quite rigid, as it characterizes round spheres and projective planes.
