en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 05 Feb 2016
This book studies certain spaces of Riemannian metrics on both compact and non-compact manifolds. These spaces are defined by various sign-based curvature conditions, with special attention paid to positive scalar curvature and non-negative sectional curvature, though we also consider positive Ricci and non-positive sectional curvature.

“This book serves as a comprehensive (yet succinct and accessible) guide to the topology of spaces of Riemannian metrics with a given curvature sign condition. … This is one of the most well-studied aspects of moduli spaces of Riemannian metrics but remains a very active area of research, and the reader will find in this book the current state-of-the-art results on the subject.” (Renato G. Bettiol, Mathematical Reviews, October, 2016)
“The interplay between analysis, geometry, and topology is clearly laid out in this book; analytic invariants are constructed to elucidate the structure of geometric moduli spaces. The book is an elegant and concise introduction to the field that puts a number of discrete papers into a coherent focus. … A useful bibliography of the subject appears at the end.” (Peter B. Gilkey, zbMATH 1336.53002, 2016)
