Book cover: An Introduction to Symmetric SpacesAn Introduction to Symmetric Spaces
by - arXiv
In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.
