Sign and geometric meaning of curvature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This is an expanded version of my «Lezione Leonardesca» given in Milano in June 1990. I try to reveal to non-initiates the inner working of the Riemannian geometry by following the tracks of relatively few ideas from the very bottom to the top of the edifice.
