An introduction to differential geometry with use of the tensor calculus by luther pfahler eisenhart preface since 1909 when my differential geometry of curves and surfaces was published the tensor calculus which had previously been invented by ricci was adopted by einstein in his general theory of relativity and has been developed further in the study of riemannian geometry and various . 1 introduction there are three essential ideas underlying general relativity gr the first is that space time may be described as a curved four dimensional mathematical structure called a pseudo riemannian manifold in brief time and space together comprise a curved four dimensional non euclidean geometry
