Lectures on Geodesics in Riemannian Geometry
by

Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
Number of pages: 317

Description:
The main topic of these notes is geodesics. Our aim is 1) to give a fairly complete treatment of the foundations of Riemannian geometry through the tangent bundle and the geodesic flow on it and 2) to give global results for Riemannian manifolds which are subject to geometric conditions of various types; these conditions involve essentially geodesics.

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.

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.
