In dimension $n$, all Riemannian metrics with non-negative Ricci curvature are uniformly doubling. Indeed, on any such manifold, the ratio of the volume of a ball of radius $2r$ divided by the volume of the concentric ball of radius $r$ is bounded by $2^n$. This talk is concerned with the conjecture that, for any compact Lie group $G$, there is a constant $C(G)$ such that any left-invariant metric is doubling with constant almost $C(G)$.

Joint work with Laurent Saloff-Coste, Nathaniel Eldredge (University of Northern Colorado) and Maria Gordina (University of Connecticut).
