Survey Articles in Riemannian Geometry
The papers in this volume were written by graduate students in the
course Math 240, Riemannian Geometry, in the Spring Semester of 1995.
The papers were revised by the authors after a reading by one other
student and the instructor.
Each paper is either a survey of an area or a tutorial essay in a
topic related to riemannian geometry. Students chose topics related
to their research interests, and since many of them are working in
topology, this is reflected in the large number of surveys in topology
and hyperbolic geometry. Nevertheless, there are also papers in
traditional areas of riemannian geometry (such as minimal surface
theory) and topics related to operator algebras, symplectic geometry,
and mathematical physics. We hope that these papers, which reflect
the breadth and applications of riemannian geometry, will be useful
for students and researchers interested in a quick look at many
aspects of geometry and topology.
