The classical isoperimetric inequality states that in Euclidean space spheres form the least perimeter enclosures for any give volume. We will review the historic development of this result in mathematics, and various approaches to proving it. Then we will discuss how one of these approaches, which is a variational argument, may be extended to spaces of nonpositive curvature, known as Cartan-Hadamard manifolds, in order to generalize the isoperimetric inequality.
