Requiring only an understanding of differentiable manifolds, Isaac Chavel covers introductory ideas followed by a selection of more specialized topics in this second edition. He provides a clearer treatment of many topics, with new proofs of some theorems and a new chapter on the Riemannian geometry of surfaces. Among the classical topics shown in a new setting is isoperimetric inequalities in curved spaces. Completely new themes created by curvature include the classical Rauch comparison theorem and its consequences in geometry and topology, and the interaction of microscopic behavior of the geometry with the macroscopic structure of the space.

Book Description:

This corrected and clarified second edition, including a new chapter on the Riemannian geometry of surfaces, provides an introduction to the geometry of curved spaces. Its main themes are the effect of the curvature of these spaces on the usual notions of classical Euclidean geometry and the new notions and ideas motivated by curvature itself. An ambitious Notes and Exercises section is included with each chapter. The book, which could be used as the basis for a graduate course, will appeal to graduate students and researchers in differential geometry and topology, analysis and differential equations.
