9780817634902: Riemannian Geometry

Riemannian Geometry is an expanded edition of a highly acclaimed and successful textbook (originally published in Portuguese) for first-year graduate students in mathematics and physics. The author's treatment goes very directly to the basic language of Riemannian geometry and immediately presents some of its most fundamental theorems. It is elementary, assuming only a modest background from readers, making it suitable for a wide variety of students and course structures. Its selection of topics has been deemed "superb" by teachers who have used the text.

A significant feature of the book is its powerful and revealing structure, beginning simply with the definition of a differentiable manifold and ending with one of the most important results in Riemannian geometry, a proof of the Sphere Theorem. The text abounds with basic definitions and theorems, examples, applications, and numerous exercises to test the student's understanding and extend knowledge and insight into the subject. Instructors and students alike will find the work to be a significant contribution to this highly applicable and stimulating subject.

Review:

"This is one of the best (if even not just the best) book for those who want to get a good, smooth and quick, but yet thorough introduction to modern Riemannian geometry."

–Publicationes Mathematicae

"This is a very nice introduction to global Riemannian geometry, which leads the reader quickly to the heart of the topic. Nevertheless, classical results are also discussed on many occasions, and almost 60 pages are devoted to exercises."

–Newsletter of the EMS

"In the reviewer's opinion, this is a superb book which makes learning a real pleasure."

―Revue Romaine de Mathematiques Pures et Appliquees

"This mainstream presentation of differential geometry serves well for a course on Riemannian geometry, and it is complemented by many annotated exercises."

―Monatshefte F. Mathematik
