By Thierry Aubin

This textbook for second-year graduate scholars is meant as an creation to differential geometry with relevant emphasis on Riemannian geometry. bankruptcy I explains uncomplicated definitions and provides the proofs of the real theorems of Whitney and Sard.

Chapter II offers with vector fields and differential varieties. bankruptcy III addresses integration of vector fields and $p$-plane fields. bankruptcy IV develops the inspiration of connection on a Riemannian manifold regarded as a method to outline parallel delivery at the manifold. the writer additionally discusses comparable notions of torsion and curvature, and offers a operating wisdom of the covariant spinoff.

Chapter V specializes on Riemannian manifolds through deducing international houses from neighborhood houses of curvature, the ultimate aim being to figure out the manifold thoroughly. bankruptcy VI explores a few difficulties in PDEs urged by means of the geometry of manifolds.

The writer is recognized for his major contributions to the sphere of geometry and PDEs--particularly for his paintings at the Yamabe problem--and for his expository bills at the topic.

Proposition. 'l o ib* = (if o 4P)*. Let V be a third differentiable manifold and V a differentiable mapping of W into V. If f is a differentiable function in a neighbourhood of T(Q) 2. )-1. 9. Example. The tangent vector -2 to a differentiable curve -y(t) of M,, (y is a differentiable map of (a, b) C R into Mn). Let to E (a, b). , (1) being the unit vector on R. 10. Proposition. The tangent bundle T(M) has a structure of differentiable manifold of class C''-1, if Mn is a differentiable manifold of class C'' with r> 1.

C = {z E CJIzI = 1} being the unit circle centered at 0 in C, we consider the map p of R into the torus T = C x C defined by R 3 u -+ V(u) = (e2"', e2'"u) E T. What can we say about

2. Tangent Space 46 Let y(t) be a map in the equivalence class 7 (7(0) = P), and f a realvalued function in a neighbourhood of P. 2), ' : X. Indeed, since d(f o7) = d(f ov-1 ocpo7) = d(f if -y1 - -t2 we have ra(fat71)lc=o = (a(J)lc=o' because by definition [d(v o yl)]t=o = [d(cp o 72)]t-o. 2): (a) is obvious, and if f is flat at P, than (8(f o -y)/&)t--o = 0 since (d(f o cp-1) pi = 0.
