This mograph treats rmally hyperbolic invariant manifolds, with a focus on ncompactness. These objects generalize hyperbolic fixed points and are ubiquitous in dynamical systems. First, rmally hyperbolic invariant manifolds and their relation to hyperbolic fixed points and center manifolds, as well as, overviews of history and methods of proofs are presented. Furthermore, issues (such as uniformity and bounded geometry) arising due to ncompactness are discussed in great detail with examples. The main new result shown is a proof of persistence for ncompact rmally hyperbolic invariant manifolds in Riemannian manifolds of bounded geometry. This extends well-kwn results by Fenichel and Hirsch, Pugh and Shub, and is complementary to ncompactness results in Banach spaces by Bates, Lu and Zeng. Along the way, some new results in bounded geometry are obtained and a framework is developed to analyze ODEs in a differential geometric context. Finally, the main result is extended to time and parameter dependent systems and overflowing invariant manifolds.
