Title
Geometric
realizations
of
curvature

DescriptionAbstract
A
central
area
of
study
in
Differential
Geometry
is
the
examination
of the
relationship
between
the
purely
algebraic
properties
of the
Riemann
curvature
tensor
and the
underlying
geometric
properties
of the
manifold
. In this
book
, the
findings
of
numerous
investigations
in this
field
of
study
are
reviewed
and
presented
in a
clear
,
coherent
form
,
including
the
latest
developments
and
proofs
.
Even
though
many
authors
have
worked
in this
area
in
recent
years
,
many
fundamental
questions
still
remain
unanswered
.
Many
studies
begin
by
first
working
purely
algebraically
and then
later
progressing
onto the
geometric
setting
and
it
has been
found
that
many
questions
in
differential
geometry
can
be
phrased
as
problems
involving
the
geometric
realization
of
curvature
.
Curvature
decompositions
are
central
to
all
investigations
in this
area
. The
authors
present
numerous
results
including
the
SingerThorpe
decomposition
, the
Bokan
decomposition
, the
Nikcevic
decomposition
, the
TricerriVanhecke
decomposition
, the
GrayHervella
decomposition
and the
De
Smedt
decomposition
. They then
proceed
to
draw
appropriate
geometric
conclusions
from these
decompositions
. The
book
organizes
, in
one
coherent
volume
, the
results
of
research
completed
by
many
different
investigators
over
the
past
30
years
.
Complete
proofs
are
given
of
results
that are
often
only
outlined
in the
original
publications
.
Whereas
the
original
results
are
usually
in the
positive
definite
(Riemannian
setting)
, here the
authors
extend
the
results
to the
pseudoRiemannian
setting
and then
further
, in a
complex
framework
, to
paraHermitian
geometry
as
well
. In
addition
to that,
new
results
are
obtained
as
well
,
making
this an
ideal
text
for
anyone
wishing
to
further
their
knowledge
of the
science
of
curvature
.
