Riemannian Geometry: Definitions, Pictures, and Results
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 69

Description:
A pedagogical but concise overview of Riemannian geometry is provided, in the context of usage in physics. The emphasis is on defining and visualizing concepts and relationships between them, as well as listing common confusions, alternative notations and jargon, and relevant facts and theorems. Special attention is given to detailed figures and geometric viewpoints.
