Description:
Comparison Geometry asks: What can we say about a Riemannian manifold if we know a bound for its curvature, and perhaps something about its topology? This volume is an up-to-date panorama of Comparison Geometry, featuring surveys and new research. Surveys present classical and recent results, and often include complete proofs, in some cases involving a new and unified approach. The historical evolution of the subject is summarized in charts and tables of examples.

Differential geometry is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with informal symbol manipulation. We use computer programs to communicate a precise understanding of the computations in differential geometry.
