Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


As a final argument of this book I propose a theme, simple in its formulation, but not so simple in its design: to see which are the principal Hamilton functions for the geodesics of two basic Riemannian manifolds of constant curvature. In drafting this chapter, I was pleasantly helped by Franco Cardin, University of Padua.
