by - arXiv ,
These notes on Riemannian geometry use the bases bundle and frame bundle, as in Geometry of Manifolds, to express the geometric structures. It starts with the definition of Riemannian and semi-Riemannian structures on manifolds.

by - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research ,
The main topic of these notes is geodesics. Our aim is to give a fairly complete treatment of the foundations of Riemannian geometry and to give global results for Riemannian manifolds which are subject to geometric conditions of various types.

by - arXiv ,
This paper is a short summary of our recent work on the medians and means of probability measures in Riemannian manifolds. The existence and uniqueness results of local medians are given. We propose a subgradient algorithm and prove its convergence.

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.

by - Harvard University ,
This course will concern the interaction between: hyperbolic geometry in dimensions 2 and 3, the dynamics of iterated rational maps, and the theory of Riemann surfaces and their deformations. Intended for advanced graduate students.
(12283 views) An Introduction to Riemannian Geometry
by - Lund University ,
The main purpose of these lecture notes is to introduce the beautiful theory of Riemannian Geometry. Of special interest are the classical Lie groups allowing concrete calculations of many of the abstract notions on the menu.
(12084 views) Semi-Riemann Geometry and General Relativity
by ,
Course notes for an introduction to Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The background assumed is a good grounding in linear algebra and in advanced calculus.
