Comparison Theorems in Riemannian Geometry by Jeff Cheeger and David G. Ebin

By Jeff Cheeger and David G. Ebin

The significant subject matter of this e-book is the interplay among the curvature of an entire Riemannian manifold and its topology and international geometry. the 1st 5 chapters are preparatory in nature. they start with a really concise advent to Riemannian geometry, through an exposition of Toponogov's theorem--the first such therapy in a e-book in English. subsequent comes an in depth presentation of homogeneous areas within which the most target is to discover formulation for his or her curvature. a short bankruptcy of Morse idea is by way of one at the injectivity radius. Chapters 6-9 care for a few of the such a lot suitable contributions to the topic within the years 1959 to 1974. those comprise the pinching (or sphere) theorem, Berger's theorem for symmetric areas, the differentiable sphere theorem, the constitution of whole manifolds of non-negative curvature, and eventually, effects concerning the constitution of entire manifolds of non-positive curvature. Emphasis is given to the phenomenon of stress, particularly, the truth that even supposing the conclusions which carry below the idea of a few strict inequality on curvature can fail whilst the stern inequality on curvature can fail while the stern inequality is comfy to a vulnerable one, the failure can ensue simply in a limited means, that may frequently be categorized as much as isometry. a lot of the cloth, quite the final 4 chapters, was once basically state of the art whilst the booklet first seemed in 1975. seeing that then, the topic has exploded, however the fabric coated within the booklet nonetheless represents an important prerequisite for a person who desires to paintings within the box.

Geometric Tomography (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Geometric tomography offers with the retrieval of data a few geometric item from information pertaining to its projections (shadows) on planes or cross-sections by means of planes. it's a geometric relative of automatic tomography, which reconstructs a picture from X-rays of a human sufferer. the topic overlaps with convex geometry and employs many instruments from that quarter, together with a few formulation from vital geometry.

First Steps in Differential Geometry: Riemannian, Contact, Symplectic (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

Differential geometry arguably deals the smoothest transition from the traditional collage arithmetic series of the 1st 4 semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the better degrees of abstraction and facts encountered on the top department by way of arithmetic majors. this present day it truly is attainable to explain differential geometry as "the examine of buildings at the tangent space," and this article develops this standpoint.
