Online Price 3 Label: A quick chapter of Morse theory is followed by one on the injectivity radius.
To conclude, one can say that this book presents many interesting and recent results of global Riemannian geometry, and that by its well composed introductory comparisoj, the authors have managed to make it readable by non-specialists.

Emphasis is given to the phenomenon of rigidity, namely, the fact that although the conclusions which hold under the assumption of some strict inequality on curvature can fail when the strict inequality on curvature can fail when the strict inequality is relaxed to a weak one, the failure can happen only in a restricted way, which can usually be classified up to isometry.
Next comes a detailed presentation of homogeneous spaces in which the main goal is to find formulas for their curvature. The first five chapters are preparatory in nature.
Dual Price 1 Label: Graduate students and riemannuan mathematicians interested in Riemannian manifolds. Geometty begin with a very concise introduction to Riemannian geometry, followed by an exposition of Toponogov’s theorem—the cyeeger such treatment in a book in English.
