This text for graduate students and research mathematicians progresses from differentiable manifolds and the tangent structure through the local Frobenius theorem, covariant derivatives, and Riemannian and semi-Riemannian geometry.
We remark that higher order rate distortion manifolds are likely to give better approximations than lower ones, in the same sense that second order tangent structures give better, if more complicated, approximations in conventional differentiable manifolds.
