This note explains the following topics: Manifolds, Tangent
spaces and the tangent bundle, Riemannian manifolds, Geodesics, The
fundamental group. The theorem of Seifert-van Kampen, Vector bundles, The
Yang-Mills functional, Curvature of Riemannian manifolds, Jacobi Fields,

This book represents
course notes for a one semester course at the undergraduate level giving an
introduction to Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application,
Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The background assumed is a good
grounding in linear algebra and in advanced calculus, preferably in the language
of differential forms.

This note covers the following topics: Smooth Manifolds ,
Tangent Spaces, Affine Connections on Smooth Manifolds, Riemannian
Manifolds, Geometry of Surfaces in R3, Geodesics in Riemannian
Manifolds, Complete Riemannian Manifolds and Jacobi Fields.

This note covers the following topics: Differentiable Manifolds, The
Tangent Space, The Tangent Bundle, Riemannian Manifolds, The Levi-Civita
Connection, Geodesics, The Riemann Curvature Tensor, Curvature and Local
Geometry.
