Publisher: University of California
Number of pages: 263

Description:
This course will describe the foundations of Riemannian geometry, including geodesics and curvature, as well as connections in vector bundles, and then go on to discuss the relationships between curvature and topology. Topology will presented in two dual contrasting forms, de Rham cohomology and Morse homology.

Book cover: A Sampler of Riemann-Finsler GeometryA Sampler of Riemann-Finsler Geometry
by - Cambridge University Press
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.
