Riemannian Geometry includes results discovered during the last few years, which have previously only been available through research papers. It contains an elementary account of twistor spaces, of interest to applied mathematicians and physicists, and the final chapter gives the only accountavailable in book form of Willmore surfaces (illustrated by a series of computer-generated pictures).
T. J. Willmore is at University of Durham.

Editorial Reviews

`a timely grand review of the whole field of modern differential geometry ... It includes a concise and very readable account of twistor spaces which should appeal especially to mathematicians and physicists; and it clearly describes recent developments on sundry topics hitherto treated onlyin research papers.'Aslib Book Guide, vol.61, no.10, October 1996.
