American Mathematical Society[T]his book is succinct but essentially self-contained; it includes an appendix with background material as well as an extensive bibliography. The algorithmic techniques developed may be useful anytime a model leads to a mathematical optimization problem where the domain naturally is a manifold, particularly if the manifold is a matrix manifold. The book follows the usual definition-theorem-proof style but it is not intended for traditional course work so there are no exercises. A reader with limited exposure to manifold theory and differential geometry most likely will benefit from consulting standard texts on those subjects first.
