Summary: This text is designed for a one-quarter or one-semester graduate couse in Riemannian geometry.

The book begins with a careful treatment of the machinery of metrics, connections, and geodesics, and then introduces the Riemann curvature tensor, before moving on the subman ...show moreifold theory, in order to give the curvature tensor a concrete quantitative interpretation. The remainder of the text is devoted to proving the four most fundamental theorems relating curvature and topology: the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem, the Cartan-Hadamard Theorem, Bonnet's Theorem, and a special case of the Cartan-Ambrose- Hicks Theorem. This unique volume will especially appeal to students by presenting a selective introduction to the main ides of the subject in an easily accessible way. The material is ideal for a single course, but broad enough to provide students with a firm foundation from which to pursue research or develop applications in Riemannian geometry and other fields that use its tools. Of special interest are the ''exercises'' and ''problems'' dispersed throughout the text. The exercises are carefully chosen and timed so as to give the reader opportunities to review material that hasjust been introduced, to practice working with the definitions, and to develop skills that are used later in the book.
