**Holonomy Groups in Riemannian Geometry**

by Andrew Clarke, Bianca Santoro

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 124

**Description**:

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.
