**Riemannian Submanifolds: A Survey**

by **Bang-Yen Chen** - **arXiv** , **2013**

Submanifold theory is a very active vast research field which plays an important role in the development of modern differential geometry. In this book, the author provides a broad review of Riemannian submanifolds in differential geometry.

**Riemannian Geometry**

by **Richard L. Bishop** - **arXiv** , **2013**

These notes on Riemannian geometry use the bases bundle and frame bundle, as in Geometry of Manifolds, to express the geometric structures. It starts with the definition of Riemannian and semi-Riemannian structures on manifolds.

**Holonomy Groups in Riemannian Geometry**

by **Andrew Clarke, Bianca Santoro** - **arXiv** , **2012**

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.

**Lectures on Geodesics in Riemannian Geometry**

by **M. Berger** - **Tata Institute of Fundamental Research** , **1965**

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.

**Medians and Means in Riemannian Geometry: Existence, Uniqueness and Computation**

by **M. Arnaudon, F. Barbaresco, L. Yang** - **arXiv** , **2011**

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.

**A Panoramic View of Riemannian Geometry**

by **Marcel Berger** - **Springer** , **2002**

In this monumental work, Marcel Berger manages to survey large parts of present day Riemannian geometry. The book offers a great opportunity to get a first impression of some part of Riemannian geometry, together with hints for further reading.

**A Sampler of Riemann-Finsler Geometry**

by **D. Bao, R. Bryant, S. Chern, Z. Shen** - **Cambridge University Press** , **2004**

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.

**Riemann Surfaces, Dynamics and Geometry**

by **Curtis McMullen** - **Harvard University** , **2008**

This course will concern the interaction between: hyperbolic geometry in dimensions 2 and 3, the dynamics of iterated rational maps, and the theory of Riemann surfaces and their deformations. Intended for advanced graduate students.

**An Introduction to Riemannian Geometry**

by **Sigmundur Gudmundsson** - **Lund University** , **2010**

The main purpose of these lecture notes is to introduce the beautiful theory of Riemannian Geometry. Of special interest are the classical Lie groups allowing concrete calculations of many of the abstract notions on the menu.

**Semi-Riemann Geometry and General Relativity**

by **Shlomo Sternberg** , **2003**

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