Differential Geometry II
In the lecture, basic topics in Riemannian Geometry are treated from a theoretical point of view and illustrated with several examples.
Content: A digest of the following topics will be presented:
 Exponential map and HopfRinow theorem
 Connections between curvature und topology (e.g. Myers theorem, HadamardCartan theorem, Klingenberg theorem, rigidity theorems)
 Closed geodesics
 Stokes theorem, cohomology
 Spaces of constant curvature, Lie groups, symmetric and homogeneous spaces
 Conformal geometry, geometric evolution equations and differential equations from geometric analysis
 Basic concepts from differential topology
