**An Introduction to Riemannian Geometry**

by Sigmundur Gudmundsson

**Publisher**: Lund University 2010**Number of pages**: 106

**Description**:

The main purpose of these lecture notes is to introduce the beautiful theory of Riemannian Geometry, a still very active area of mathematical research. This is a subject with no lack of interesting examples. They are indeed the key to a good understanding of it and will therefore play a major role throughout this work. Of special interest are the classical Lie groups allowing concrete calculations of many of the abstract notions on the menu.

**Riemannian Geometry**

by

**Richard L. Bishop**-

**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.
