Given a subset $S$ of a Hadamard manifold $M$. Is there a curvature criterion (for $\partial S$) to decide whether $S$ is convex.

I am looking for a ganeralization of the following statement:

A connected subset of $\mathbb{R}^2$ bounded by a smooth curve $\gamma$ with $||\dot{\gamma}||=1$ is convex, if $\gamma$ "always turns in the same direction" - more formally if $t\mapsto det(\dot{\gamma}(t),\ddot{\gamma}(t))$ never changes sign.

convexsubset of a Riemannian manifold? – Dror Atariah Jan 10 '11 at 14:48
