Descripción

First Edition. vii, 262 pp; errata leaf. Original cloth, printed paper front cover and spine labels. Signature of former owner on front pastedown. Some neat, advanced, light pencil notes in margins, mostly toward beginning. Else Very Good. 'The second stage [of Eisenhart's work in differential geometry] started after 1921 when Eisenhart, prompted by Einstein's general theory of relativity and the related geometries, studied generalisations of Riemannian geometry. He published Riemannian Geometry in 1926 and Non-Riemannian Geometry in 1927. The scene is set for the first of these works in [the D.S.B.]: 'Riemann proposed the generalisation of the theory of surfaces as developed by Gauss, to spaces of any order, and introduced certain fundamental ideas in this general theory. Important contributions to it were made by Bianchi, Beltrami, Christoffel, Schur, Voss, and others, and Ricci-Curbastro coordinated and extended the theory with the use of tensor analysis and his absolute calculus. The book gave a presentation of the existing theory of Riemannian geometry after a period of considerable study and development of the subject by Levi-Civita, Eisenhart, and many others' (MacTutor History of Mathematics Web site).
