by

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 259

Description:
These notes will be helpful to undergraduate and postgraduate students in theoretical physics and in applied mathematics. Modern terminology in differential geometry has been discussed in the book with the motivation of geometrical or pictorial way of thinking. The book shows the wide applicability of differential geometry to relativity theory.

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.

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.
