Differential Geometry II — Lorentzian Geometry

Prof. Bernd Ammann, Office no. 119

This lecture will be held in the summer term 2021. It builds upon the lecture Differential Geometry I by Clara Löh held during the winter term 2020/21.
Information about the content of this lectures will be published in January or February 2021.


In this lecture we will study semi-Riemannian manifolds, mainly concentrating on Lorentzian manifolds. More details will follow soon.
