Riemannian geometry is the branch of differential geometry that studies Riemannian manifoldssmooth manifolds with a Riemannian metrici.

These would subsequently become major parts of the theories of Riemannian geometryalgebraic geometryand complex manifold theory. It deals with a broad range of geometries whose metric properties vary from point to point, including the standard types of Non-Euclidean geometry.

Through geometda work of David Hilbert in the Calculus of Variations, the Dirichlet principle was finally established. Light cone World line Minkowski diagram Biquaternions Minkowski space.

Riemann had not noticed that his working assumption that the minimum existed might not work; the function space might not be complete, and therefore the riekann of a minimum was not guaranteed.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. His teachers were amazed by his adept ability to perform complicated mathematical operations, in which he often outstripped his instructor’s knowledge. What follows is an incomplete list of the most classical theorems in Riemannian geometry.

Background Introduction Mathematical formulation. Riemann’s tombstone geomettra Biganzolo Italy refers to Romans 8: Riemann had been in a competition with Weierstrass since to solve the Jacobian inverse problems for abelian integrals, a generalization of elliptic integrals.


Otherwise, Weierstrass was very impressed with Riemann, especially with his theory of abelian functions. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Retrieved from ” https: Riemannian geometry was first put forward in generality by Bernhard Riemann in the 19th century.

Gustav Roch Eduard Selling. However, once there, he began studying mathematics under Carl Friedrich Gauss specifically his lectures on the method of least squares. Development of Riemannian geometry resulted in synthesis of diverse results concerning the geometry of surfaces and the behavior of geodesics on them, with techniques that can be applied to the study of differentiable manifolds of higher dimensions.

Its early reception appears to have been slow but it is now recognized as one of the most important works in geometry. The fundamental object is called the Riemann curvature tensor. Here, too, rigorous proofs were first given after the development of richer mathematical tools in this case, topology.

Karl Weierstrass found a gap in the proof: Retrieved from ” https: Other generalizations of Riemannian geometry include Finsler geometry.

Riemann held his first lectures inwhich founded the field of Riemannian geometry and thereby set the stage for Albert Einstein ‘s general theory of relativity. Complex functions are harmonic functions that is, they satisfy Laplace’s equation and thus the Cauchy—Riemann equations on these surfaces and are described by the location of their singularities and the topology of the surfaces.

Riemann’s idea was to introduce a collection of numbers at every point in space i. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Bernhard Riemann. This is the famous construction central to his geometry, known now as a Riemannian metric. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikiquote. He is considered by many to be one of a handful of greatest mathematicians of all time. According to Detlef Laugwitz[11] automorphic functions appeared for the first time in an essay about the Laplace equation on electrically charged cylinders.


For the proof of the existence of functions on Riemann surfaces he used a minimality condition, which he called the Dirichlet principle.

This gives, in particular, local notions of anglelength of curvessurface area and volume. He also worked with hypergeometric differential equations in using complex analytical methods and presented the solutions through the behavior of closed paths about singularities described by the monodromy matrix.

Among other things, he showed that every piecewise continuous function is integrable. In high school, Riemann riemnan the Bible intensively, but he was often distracted by mathematics.

Bernhard Riemann – Wikipedia

Retrieved 13 October Riemann gave geometrq example of a Fourier series representing a continuous, almost nowhere-differentiable function, a case not covered by Dirichlet.

Riemannian geometry originated with the vision of Bernhard Riemann expressed in his inaugural lecture ” Ueber die Hypothesen, welche der Geometrie zu Grunde liegen ” “On the Hypotheses on which Geometry is Based”. He had visited Dirichlet in Dirichlet has shown this for continuous, piecewise-differentiable functions thus with countably many non-differentiable points.

For the surface case, this can be reduced to a number scalarpositive, negative, or zero; the non-zero and constant cases being models of the known non-Euclidean geometries. He made some famous contributions to modern analytic number theory.

In Riemann’s work, there are many more interesting developments. Point Line segment ray Length.

This area of mathematics is part of the foundation of topology and is still being applied in novel ways to mathematical physics. Altitude Hypotenuse Pythagorean theorem.
