Title: Metrics on the manifold of positive definite matrices and matrix means

Abstract: I will talk about the set of positive definite matrices as a Riemannian manifold. Then I will introduce two metrics on this set and explain their basic properties. After describing their connection through the geometric mean of two positive definite matrices, similarities and differences between two metrics will be discussed.
