These notes on Riemannian geometry use the bases bundle and frame bundle, as in Geometry of Manifolds, to express the geometric structures. It has more problems and omits the background material. It starts with the definition of Riemannian and semi-Riemannian structures on manifolds. Affine connections, geodesics, torsion and curvature, the exponential map, and the Riemannian connection follow quickly.

A pedagogical but concise overview of Riemannian geometry is provided in the context of usage in physics. The emphasis is on defining and visualizing concepts and relationships between them, as well as listing common confusions and relevant theorems.

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.

Course notes for an introduction to Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The background assumed is a good grounding in linear algebra and in advanced calculus.
