Example text

Finally, Chern realized that in this setting one could describe geometrically the invariants for a G-structure given by Cartan's general method; in fact they can all be calculated from the curvature forms of the intrinsic connection. Note that this covers one of the most important examples of a Gstructure; namely the case G = O(n), corresponding to Riemannian geometry. The intrinsic connection is of course the "Levi-Civita connection" . , to find explicitly a complete set of local invariants for a Riemannian metric.

If M is a smooth, compact, oriented n-dimensional manifold then e(F(M» E Hn(M) when evaluated on the fundamental class of M is just X(M). One can thus interpret the Generalized GaussBonnet Theorem as saying that). = Pf(w) represents e(F(M}) in de Rham cohomology. This inspired Chern to look for a general technique for representing characteristic classes by de Rham classes. This was in 1944-1945, while Chern was in Princeton, and he discussed this problem frequently with his friend Andre Wei! who encouraged him in this search.

Chern feels that the time is now ripe to recast all the beautiful global results of Riemannian geometry of the past several decades in the Finsler context, and he points out that thinking of Riemannian geometry as a special case of Finsler geometry was already advocated by David Hilbert in his twenty-third problem a t the turn of the last century. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, t. 314, SQrieI, p. 1, 1993). He has also recently spelled out the general program in a paper that is as yet unpublished, "Riemannian geometry as a special case of Finsler geometry".
