Book cover: A Sampler of Riemann-Finsler GeometryA Sampler of Riemann-Finsler Geometry
by - Cambridge University Press
Finsler geometry generalizes Riemannian geometry in the same sense that Banach spaces generalize Hilbert spaces. The contributors consider issues related to volume, geodesics, curvature, complex differential geometry, and parametrized jet bundles.

The main topic of these notes is geodesics. Our aim is to give a fairly complete treatment of the foundations of Riemannian geometry and to give global results for Riemannian manifolds which are subject to geometric conditions of various types.

Book cover: Riemannian Geometry: Definitions, Pictures, and ResultsRiemannian Geometry: Definitions, Pictures, and Results
by - arXiv
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.
