Monatshefte F. Mathematik"This is one of the best (if even not just the best) book for those who want to get a good, smooth and quick, but yet thorough introduction to modern Riemannian geometry."Publicationes MathematicaeContents: Differential Manifolds * Riemannian Metrics * Affine Connections; Riemannian Connections * Geodesics; Convex Neighborhoods * Curvature * Jacobi Fields * Isometric Immersions * Complete Manifolds; Hopf-Rinow and Hadamard Theorems * Spaces of Constant Curvature * Variations of Energy * The Rauch Comparison Theorem * The Morse Index Theorem * The Fundamental Group of Manifolds of Negative Curvature * The Sphere Theorem * Index Series: Mathematics: Theory and Applications

Book News Annotation:

A translation (from the Portuguese) of the second edition of Geometria riemanniana (Instituto de Matematica Pura e Aplicada, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1988), a text on the basic language of and some fundamental theorems in Riemannian geometry. Includes a substantial number of exercises.
