Riemannian Geometry' is a new and expanded edition of a highly acclaimed and successful textbook for first-year graduate students in mathematics and physics. The author's treatment goes very directly to the basic language of Riemannian geometry and immediately presents some of its most fundamental theorems. It is elementary, assuming only a modest background from the readers, making it suitable for a wide variety of students and course structures. Its selection of topics has been deemed 'superb' by teachers who have used the text. A significant feature of the book is its powerful and revealing structure, beginning simply with the definition of a differentiable manifold and ending with one of the most important results in Riemannian geometry, a proof of the Sphere Theorem. The text abounds with basic definitions and theorems, examples, applications, and numerous exercises to test the student's understanding and extend knowledge and insight into the subject. Instructors and students alike will find this a truly significant contribution to education in this highly applicable and stimulating subject.
