Riemannian Geometry is an expanded edition of a highly acclaimed and successful textbook (originally published in Portuguese)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. The book begins with an introduction chapter which motivates the pinch-ing problem. A survey of the sphere theorem’s long historical development is discussed as well as possible future applications of the Ricci ow. As with any discussion in di erential geometry, there is always a labyrinth.

I have studied differential geometry, and am looking for basic introductory texts on Riemannian geometry. My target is eventually Kähler geometry, but certain topics like geodesics, curvature, connections and transport belong more firmly in Riemmanian geometry.

The reader can consult for instance the recent book [Br5]. of our “mentor” Marcel Berger. However, Riemannian Geometry is not only a fascinating field in itself.

It has proved to be a precious tool in other parts of mathematics. In this respect, we can quote the major breakthroughs in four-dimensional topology which occurred in the eighties.

Riemannian geometry is the branch of differential geometry that studies Riemannian manifolds, smooth manifolds with a Riemannian metric, i.e. with an inner product on the tangent space at each point that varies smoothly from point to point. This gives, in particular.
