Definición de Riemannian geometry en inglés:

Example sentences
  • His interests had turned away from affine and projective differential geometry and turned towards Riemannian geometry.
  • The argument relegating Euclidean and hyperbolic geometry to footnotes of Riemannian geometry would be valid only if one were conceiving them as the ‘standard’ geometries over the real numbers.
  • His research on the theory of real algebraic varieties, Riemannian geometry, parabolic and elliptic equations was, however, extremely deep and significant in the development of all these topics.
