Definitions and Examples of Riemannian Metrics
In this chapter we officially define Riemannian metrics and construct some of the elementary objects associated with them. At the end of the chapter, we introduce three classes of highly symmetric “model” Riemannian manifolds—Euclidean spaces, spheres, and hyperbolic spaces—to which we will return repeatedly as our understanding deepens and our tools become more sophisticated.
