**An Introduction to Symmetric Spaces**

by

**Ulrika Magnea**-

**arXiv**

In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.
