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.

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.
