    When the signature has a single negative the geometry is often called Lorentzian instead of pseudo-Riemannian. This geometry still inherits the concepts of the manifold, the metric, and points, of which the point remains an undefined primitive. However, Lorentzian geometry (due to its usual application in physics) frequently renamed these concepts. In differential geometry, the Einstein tensor is used to express the curvature of a pseudo-Riemannian manifold. In general relativity, it occurs in the Einstein field equations for gravitation that describe spacetime curvature in a manner consistent with .

    In this work, we show that the thermodynamic phase space is naturally endowed with a non-integrable connection, defined by all of those processes that annihilate the Gibbs one-form, i.e., reversible processes. We argue that such a connection is invariant under re-scalings of the connection one-form, whilst, as a consequence of the non-integrability of the connection, its Cited by: Get this from a library!

    The book is also wonderful for its breadth. It is not a "tensor calculus" book, or a "differential geometry" book. It is really best described as a "geometrical methods" book "with applications to theoretical physics." Yet unlike most examples of this now-cliched subject, the breadth of material is matched by a cohesion of style/5.

Semi-Riemannian geometry: with applications to relativity Barrett O'Neill This book is an exposition of semi-Riemannian geometry (also called pseudo-Riemannian geometry) - the study of a smooth manifold furnished with a metric tensor of arbitrary signature.

This book is an exposition of semi-Riemannian geometry (also called pseudo-Riemannian geometry)--the study of a smooth manifold furnished with a metric tensor of arbitrary principal special cases are Riemannian geometry, where the metric is positive definite, and Lorentz geometry.

Nevertheless, these books do not focus on (pseudo)-Riemannian geometry per se, but on general differential geometry, trying to introduce as many concepts as possible for the needs of modern theoretical physics.

Most purely mathematical books on Riemannian geometry do not treat the pseudo-Riemannian case (although many results are exactly the same). In differential geometry, a geodesic (/ ˌ dʒ iː ə ˈ d ɛ s ɪ k, ˌ dʒ iː Pseudo-riemannian geometry d iː-,-z ɪ k /) is a curve representing in some sense the shortest path between two points in a surface, or more generally in a Riemannian is a generalization of the notion of a "straight line" to a more general terms "geodesic" and "geodetic" come from geodesy, the science of.

In Section 5, we define the pseudo Riemannian Hausdorff dimension and prove Theorem Finally, the last section is devoted to the proof of Theorem 2 Pseudo-Riemannian Hyperbolic Geometry. In this section we introduce the pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic space |${\mathbb{H}}^{p,q}$| and go over its basic properties.

Recently I started to read Amari's "Information Geometry and Its Pseudo-riemannian geometry. I quickly stumbled upon some (apparent) inconsistencies. I'm looking for a book that talks about Riemannian Geometry on Manifolds with boundary.

Unfortunately, I only found some results in articles, no systematic treatises. Newest riemannian-geometry. [21] B.-Y. Chen, Pseudo-Riemannian Geometry, delta-inv ariants and Applications; W ord Scientific Pub- lishing, Hackensac k, NJ, [22] B. Author: Bang-Yen Chen. The tetrad formalism is an approach to general relativity that generalizes the choice of basis for the tangent bundle from a coordinate basis to the less restrictive choice of a local basis, i.e.

a locally defined set of four linearly independent vector fields called a tetrad. In the tetrad formalism, all tensors are represented in terms of a chosen basis. In mathematics and physics, the Christoffel symbols are an array of numbers describing a metric connection.

The metric connection is a specialization of the affine connection to surfaces or other manifolds endowed with a metric, allowing distances to be measured on that differential geometry, an affine connection can be defined without reference to a metric, and many.

Historically, at the turn of the 20th century, the covariant derivative was introduced by Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro and Tullio Levi-Civita in the theory of Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry.

[1] Ricci and Levi-Civita (following ideas of Elwin Bruno Christoffel) observed that the Christoffel symbols used to define the curvature could also.

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo- "earth", -metron"measurement") is a branch of mathematicsconcerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space.

Vector calculus, or vector analysis, is concerned with differentiation and integration of vector fields, primarily in 3-dimensional Euclidean space. The term "vector calculus" is sometimes used as a synonym for the broader subject of multivariable calculus, which includes vector calculus as well as partial differentiation and multiple integration.• The book “Artificial Black Holes”, edited by Novello, Visser, and Volovik [].
