Description:
The recent physical interpretation of intrinsic differential geometry of spaces has stimulated the study of this subject. This book aims to present the existing theory. Throughout the book constant use is made of the methods of tensor analysis and the Absolute Calculus of Ricci and Levi-Civita.

These notes on Riemannian geometry use the bases bundle and frame bundle, as in Geometry of Manifolds, to express the geometric structures. It starts with the definition of Riemannian and semi-Riemannian structures on manifolds.

The main topic of these notes is geodesics. Our aim is to give a fairly complete treatment of the foundations of Riemannian geometry and to give global results for Riemannian manifolds which are subject to geometric conditions of various types.

Finsler geometry generalizes Riemannian geometry in the same sense that Banach spaces generalize Hilbert spaces. The contributors consider issues related to volume, geodesics, curvature, complex differential geometry, and parametrized jet bundles.

Course notes for an introduction to Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The background assumed is a good grounding in linear algebra and in advanced calculus.
