    Overview

    • Presents Riemannian geometry and Lie group analysis in partial differential equations and modeling
    • Designed for developing analytical skills in classical and new methods
    • Practical, concise and allowing easy access to the topic

    Aims and Scope

    This book is based on the experience of teaching the subject by the author in Russia, France, South Africa and Sweden. The author provides students and teachers with an easy to follow textbook spanning a variety of topics on tensors, Riemannian geometry and geometric approach to partial differential equations. Application of approximate transformation groups to the equations of general relativity in the de Sitter space simplifies the subject significantly.

    Reviews

    "One characteristic of this book is its hands-on approach which favours explicit coordinate calculations over abstract concepts, which reflects the development of the field. The latter is also nicely illustrated by the many illuminating historical and philosophical citations."
    R. Steinbauer in: Monatshefte für Mathematik 139 (2019), 383–384
