Consider a Riemannian manifold with bounded Ricci curvature Ric\leq n1 and the noncollapsing lower volume bound Vol(B_1(p))>v>0. The first main result of this paper is to prove the previously conjectured L^2 curvature bound \fint_{B_1}\Rm^2 < C(n,v). In order to prove this, we will need to first show the following structural result for limits. Namely, if (M^n_j,d_j,p_j) > (X,d,p) is a GHlimit of noncollapsed manifolds with bounded Ricci curvature, then the singular set S(X) is n4 rectifiable with the uniform Hausdorff measure estimates H^{n4}(S(X)\cap B_1)<C(n,v), which in particular proves the n4finiteness conjecture of CheegerColding. We will see as a consequence of the proof that for n4 a.e. x\in S(X) that the tangent cone of X at x is unique and isometric to R^{n4}xC(S^3/G_x) for some G_x\subseteq O(4) which acts freely away from the origin. The proofs involve several new estimates on spaces with bounded Ricci curvature. This is joint work with Wenshuai Jiang
