Abstract: Let M be a compact Riemannian manifold isometrically immersed in a complete Riemannian manifold N. By the radius of M in N, we mean the minimum of radii of closed geodesic balls in N which contain M. Using the concept of a radius, we will give a theorem about the nonexistence of isometric immersions, which is a generalization of J. D. Moore's result.
