SIGMA Seminar
Connections on Manifolds; an Invitation to Riemannian Geometry
Gianmarco Molino (UConn)

12:20pm – 1:10pm

Storrs Campus
MONT 214

Riemannian geometry deals with generalizing the notion of Euclidean space into spaces with curvature. This requires many new ideas to make sense of the natural notions of length, vector fields, derivatives, and many others. We will give an overview of these concepts, culminating with the notion of affine connections and parallel transport.
