Finsler geometry generalizes Riemannian geometry in the same sense that Banach spaces generalize Hilbert spaces. This book presents an expository account of seven important topics in Riemann-Finsler geometry, ones which have recently undergone significant development but have not had a detailed pedagogical treatment elsewhere. The contributors consider issues related to volume, geodesics, curvature, complex differential geometry, and parametrized jet bundles, and include a variety of instructive examples.

This paper is a short summary of our recent work on the medians and means of probability measures in Riemannian manifolds. The existence and uniqueness results of local medians are given. We propose a subgradient algorithm and prove its convergence.

Foundations of Riemannian geometry, including geodesics and curvature, as well as connections in vector bundles, and then go on to discuss the relationships between curvature and topology. Topology will presented in two dual contrasting forms.

In this monumental work, Marcel Berger manages to survey large parts of present day Riemannian geometry. The book offers a great opportunity to get a first impression of some part of Riemannian geometry, together with hints for further reading.
