Abstract: 
Boundaries of hyperbolic spaces have played a key role in low dimensional topology and geometric group theory. In 1993, Paulin showed that the topology of the boundary of a hyperbolic space, together with its quasi-mobius structure, determines the space up to quasi-isometry. One can define an analogous boundary, called the Morse boundary, for any proper geodesic metric space. I will discuss an analogue of Paulin’s theorem for Morse boundaries of CAT(0) spaces.   (Joint work with Devin Murray)
