Abstract: A better than quadratic estimate is given for the volume of the convex hull of $n$ points on Hadamard manifolds with pinched curvature. It was known previously that the volume is bounded by some polynomial in $n$. The estimate comes from the study of the convex hull of finitely many convex sets on Hadamard manifolds.
