Introduction aux variétés différentielles by J Lafontaine ( )

Fundamental work offering exercises for high school, graduate, postgraduate students as well as for researchers
Riemannian geometry by S Gallot ( Book )
41 editions published between 1909 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, based on a graduate course on Riemannian geometry and analysis on manifolds, held in Paris, covers the topics of differential manifolds, Riemannian metrics, connections, geodesics and curvature, with special emphasis on the intrinsic features of the subject. Classical results on the relations between curvature and topology are treated in detail. The book is quite self-contained, assuming of the reader only differential calculus in Euclidean space. It contains numerous exercises with full solutions and a series of detailed examples which are picked up repeatedly to illustrate each new definition or property introduced. For this third edition, some topics about the geodesic flow and Lorentzian geometry have been added and worked out in the same spirit
Holomorphic curves in symplectic geometry by Michèle Audin ( Book )
11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is devoted to pseudo-holomorphic curve methods in symplectic geometry. It contains an introduction to symplectic geometry and relevant techniques of Riemannian geometry, proofs of Gromov's compactness theorem, an investigation of local properties of holomorphic curves, including positivity of intersections, and applications to Lagrangian embeddings problems. The chapters are based on a series of lectures given previously by the authors M. Audin, A. Banyaga, P. Gauduchon, F. Labourie, J. Lafontaine, F. Lalonde, Gang Liu, D. McDuff, M.-P. Muller, P. Pansu, L. Polterovich, J.C. Sikorav. In an attempt to make this book accessible also to graduate students, the authors provide the necessary examples and techniques needed to understand the applications of the theory. The exposition is essentially self-contained and includes numerous exercises
Écrivains québécois de nouvelle culture by Ghislaine Houle ( Book )
2 editions published in 1975 in French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Structures métriques pour les variétés riemanniennes by Mikhael Gromov ( Book )
4 editions published in 1981 in French and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Metric structures for Riemannian and non-Riemannian spaces by Mikhael Gromov ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Metric theory has undergone a dramatic phase transition when its focus moved from the foundations of real analysis to Riemannian geometry and algebraic topology, to the theory of infinite groups and probability theory. This title includes the material reflecting progress in the theory

Metric Structures for Riemannian and Non-Riemannian Spaces. Modern Birkhauser Classics ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The first edition of this book is considered one of the most influential books in geometry in the last twenty years. Among the most substantial additions [of the 2/e] is a chapter on convergence of metric spaces with measures, and an appendix on analysis on metric spaces. In addition, numerous remarks, examples, proofs, and open problems are inserted throughout the book. The original text is preserved with new items conveniently indicated. This book is certain to be a source of inspiration for many researchers as well as required reading for students entering the subject." - "Mathematical Reviews"
