Download This book provides an introduction to Riemannian geometry, the geometry of curved spaces, for use in a graduate course. Requiring only an understanding of differentiable manifolds, the author covers the introductory ideas of Riemannian geometry followed by a selection of more specialized topics. This chapter introduces the basic notions of diﬀerential geometry. The ﬁrst section studies topological manifolds of dimension n, which is the rigorous mathematical concept corresponding to the intuitive notion of “continuous n-dimensional spaces”. Several examples are studied, partic-ularly in dimension 2 (surfaces).File Size: 2MB.

This book studies certain spaces of Riemannian metrics on both compact and non-compact manifolds. These spaces are defined by various sign-based curvature conditions, with special attention paid to positive scalar curvature and non-negative sectional curvature, though we also consider positive. The series is devoted to the publication of monographs and high-level textbooks in mathematics, mathematical methods and their applications. Apart from covering important areas of current interest, a major aim is to make topics of an interdisciplinary nature accessible to the non-specialist. The works in this series are addressed to advanced students and researchers .

The objective of this graduate textbook is twofold: to give a detailed exposition of basic notions and techniques used in the theory of length spaces, and, more generally, to offer an elementary introduction into a broad variety of geometrical topics related to the notion of distance, including Riemannian and Carnot-Carathéodory metrics, the. This book introduces readers to the living topics of Riemannian Geometry and details the main results known to date. The results are stated without detailed proofs but the main ideas involved are described, affording the reader a sweeping panoramic view of almost the entirety of the : Marcel Berger.

This can be studied with the tools of Riemannian geometry, leading to consequences in the theory of holonomy; or algebraically through Lie theory, which allowed Cartan to give a.

The book first offers information on local differential geometry of space curves and surfaces and tensor calculus and Riemannian geometry. In most textbooks about Riemannian geometry, the starting point is the local theory of embedded surfaces. Here we begin directly with the so-called "abstract" manifolds.

To illustrate our point of view, a series of examples is developed each time a new definition or theorem occurs. Riemannian geometry has emerged as one of the most powerful mathematical and computational frameworks for analyzing such data.

Riemannian geometry carry over easily to the pseudo-Riemannian case and which do not. Chapter 3 describes some of the most important “model spaces” of Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry—those with lots of symmetry—with a great deal of detailed computation.

These models form a sort of leitmotif throughout the text. Having in mind different generalizations of Rieman- nian manifolds, it is clearly stressed which notions and theorems belong to Riemannian geometry and which of them are of a more general nature.
