**Publisher**: North Holland Publishing Co. 1955**Number of pages**: 321

**Description**:

This is an advanced treatment of topics in differential geometry. The topics include: Spaces with a non-vanishing curvature tensor that admit a group of automorphisms of the maximum order; Groups of transformations in generalized spaces; The study of global properties of the groups of motions in a compact orientable Riemannian space; Lie derivatives in an almost complex space.
