About what?

A Riemannian manifold is a smooth manifold together with a Riemannian metric giving rise to notions of geometric quantities such as length, angle, distance, volume and curvature. After discussing surfaces in $\R^3$, I will give the definition of a Riemannian manifold and some examples, state the Nash embedding theorem, and explain a few properties.
