Item description for Riemannian Geometry (Universitext) by Sylvestre Gallot, Dominique Hulin & Jacques Lafontaine...
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Riemannian Geometry (Universitext)?
Hard to say Feb 9, 2008
This was the official 100% recommended, guaranteed text for my Riemannian Geometry class. Supplementing this book with do Carmo's text, I was able to get something out of the class, but I think rereading both of them now would be much better. The condensed one chapter course on manifolds at the beginning of GHL wasn't sufficient to learn/relearn everything I needed to know in order to read it for the first time.
