We will discuss the problem of recovering the "shape" of a Riemannian manifold \(M\) from its Ricci curvature. After reviewing the relevant background material and the history of the subject, we will focus on the case where \(M\) is a homogeneous space for a compact Lie group. Partly based on joint work with Mark Gould.
