Also compute how the Ricci curvature changes under the rescaling of the metric. You should have also taken basic courses in linear algebra and real analysis. If you do not meet this criteria, but would still like to credit, please send me an email. Topics to be covered: Review of differentiable manifolds and tensors, Riemannian metrics, Levi-Civita connection, geodesics, exponential map, curvature tensor, first and second variation formulas, Jacobi fields, conjugate points and cut locus, Cartan-Hadamard and Bonnet Myers theorems.
