The classification of Riemannian manifolds with positive or non-negative sectional curvature is a long-standing problem in Riemannian Geometry. This talk will give a survey of tools and techniques, results and open problems concerning this class of manifolds with an emphasis on how (torus) symmetries play an important role in obtaining classification results
