by M. Arnaudon, F. Barbaresco, L. Yang
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 48
This paper is a short summary of our recent work on the medians and means of probability measures in Riemannian manifolds. Firstly, the existence and uniqueness results of local medians are given. In order to compute medians in practical cases, we propose a subgradient algorithm and prove its convergence.

The main purpose of these lecture notes is to introduce the beautiful theory of Riemannian Geometry. Of special interest are the classical Lie groups allowing concrete calculations of many of the abstract notions on the menu.

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

The holonomy group is one of the fundamental analytical objects that one can define on a Riemannian manfold. These notes provide a first introduction to the main general ideas on the study of the holonomy groups of a Riemannian manifold.

Submanifold theory is a very active vast research field which plays an important role in the development of modern differential geometry. In this book, the author provides a broad review of Riemannian submanifolds in differential geometry.
