A real projective structure on a manifold or an orbifold is given by locally modeling the space by pieces of a real projective space and gluing with projective patching maps. Hyperbolic manifolds are examples. We will give some introductory survey (but not including the deformation spaces). Then we will study convex real projective structures with radial or totally geodesic ends. We will discuss how to classify some reasonable collections of these types of ends. (Ballas, Cooper, Danciger, Long, and Tillman also are studying ends with analogous conditions.)
