Riemannian Geometry and Geometric Analysis

Front Cover
Springer, 1998 - Geometry, Riemannian - 455 pages
From the reviews: 'This book provides a very readable introduction to Riemannian geometry and geometric analysis. The author focuses on using analytic methods in the study of some fundamental theorems in Riemannian geometry, e.g., the Hodge theorem, the Rauch comparison theorem, the Lyusternik and Fet theorem and the existence of harmonic mappings. With the vast development of the mathematical subject of geometric analysis, the present textbook is most welcome. It is a good introduction to Riemannian geometry. The book is made more interesting by the perspectives in various sections. where the author mentions the history and development of the material and provides the reader with references.' Math. Reviews. The 2nd ed. includes new material on Ginzburg-Landau, Seibert-Witten functionals, spin geometry, Dirac operators.
