**An Introduction to Riemannian Geometry**

by Sigmundur Gudmundsson

**Publisher**: Lund University 2010**Number of pages**: 106

**Description**:

The main purpose of these lecture notes is to introduce the beautiful theory of Riemannian Geometry, a still very active area of mathematical research. This is a subject with no lack of interesting examples. They are indeed the key to a good understanding of it and will therefore play a major role throughout this work. Of special interest are the classical Lie groups allowing concrete calculations of many of the abstract notions on the menu.

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.
