 A survival guide for feeble fish
Even the review of Riemannian geometry, which might be too long for some, is appropriate to firmly establish notation and because hyperbolic geometry and Riemannian curvature are so central to the topic of the text. If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?
Also the overall choice of topics is very good. Unfortunately, ivaov book has many, many typos.
A Course in Metric Geometry
They begin with the definition of length spaces, and by the final chapter cover almost all of the material in the well known survey paper by Burago, Gromov, and Perel’man. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. The authors tend to work with “easy-to-touch” mathematical objects using “easy-to-visualize” bhrago.
For now, I have switched to Bridson-Haefliger.
Write a customer review. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. I am an undergraduate math student, and I encountered this book as the primary background text for a summer project in geometry. Dates First available in Project Euclid: It does a number of things very well, but it does possess some comparitively minor flaws that are nonetheless worth noting.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Permanent link to this document https: Dual Price 1 Label: Anyone who is intensely concerned with Riemmannian geometry ivxnov not pass up this ivvanov.
The authors set a challenging goal of making the core parts of the book accessible to first-year graduate students. Abstract Article info and citation First page References Abstract This paper is a continuation of our paper burafo boundary rigidity and filling minimality of metrics close to flat ones.
The one redeeming feature may be the exercises. Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams.
Most new concepts and methods are introduced and illustrated using simplest cases and avoiding technicalities. The authors also do a good job in general of summoning the neccessary background material without dwelling on review too extensively; you should probably have already seen the Hausdorff measure and the fundamental group before you pick up this book, but the book recalls the main concepts and results with helpful exercises in case your memory has faded or don’t have much experience with such notions.

I have abandoned this book.
