## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

A differential manifold $M$ is said to be negatively curved if it can be equipped with a Riemannian metric with negative sectional curvature.

## Facts

The Cartan-Hadamard theorem states that the universal cover of any negatively curved manfiold is diffeomorphic to Euclidean space (viz $\mathbb{R}^n$).
