Abstract

We have now covered almost half of the chapters of the present textbook and the more elementary aspects of the subject. Before penetrating into more advanced topics, a short survey on some directions of global Riemannian geometry may be a useful orientation guide. Because of the size and scope of the present book, this survey needs to be selective.
