Riemannian geometry by
Luther Pfahler Eisenhart(
Book
)
101 editions published between 1925 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his classic work of geometry, Euclid focused on the properties of flat surfaces. In the age of exploration, mapmakers such as Mercator had to concern themselves with the properties of spherical surfaces. The study of curved surfaces, or nonEuclidean geometry, flowered in the late nineteenth century, as mathematicians such as Riemann increasingly questioned Euclid's parallel postulate, and by relaxing this constraint derived a wealth of new results. These seemingly abstract properties found immediate application in physics upon Einstein's introduction of the general theory of relativity. In this book, Eisenhart succinctly surveys the key concepts of Riemannian geometry, addressing mathematicians and theoretical physicists alike

NonRiemannian geometry by
Luther Pfahler Eisenhart(
Book
)
56 editions published between 1927 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
NonRiemannian Geometry deals basically with manifolds dominated by the geometry of paths developed by the author, Luther Pfahler Eisenhart, and Oswald Veblen, who were faculty colleagues at Princeton University during the early twentieth century. Eisenhart played an active role in developing Princeton's preeminence among the world's centers for mathematical study, and he is equally renowned for his achievements as a researcher and an educator. In Riemannian geometry, parallelism is determined geometrically by this property: along a geodesic, vectors are parallel if they make the same angle with the tangents. In nonRiemannian geometry, the LeviCivita parallelism imposed a priori is replaced by a determination by arbitrary functions (affine connections). In this volume, Eisenhart investigates the main consequences of the deviation. Starting with a consideration of asymmetric connections, the author proceeds to a contrasting survey of symmetric connections. Discussions of the projective geometry of paths follow, and the final chapter explores the geometry of subspaces
