In this talk, we will discuss the shape of the min-max minimal hypersurface produced by Almgren-Pitts corresponding to the fundamental class of a Riemannian manifold (M^{n+1},g) of positive Ricci curvature with 2 ? n ? 6. We characterize the Morse index, volume and multiplicity of this min-max hypersurface.
