  The original Russian edition of this book is the fifth in my series "Lectures on Geometry. " Therefore, to make the presentation relatively independent and self-contained in the English translation, I have added supplementary chapters in a special addendum (Chaps. 3Q), in which the necessary facts from manifold theory and vector bundle theory are briefly summarized without proofs as a rule. Riemannian geometry is a fundamental area of modern mathematics, and the subdiscipline of geodesics (shortest paths) is of particular significance. Compact and self-contained, this text by a noted theorist presents the essentials of modern differential geometry as well as the basic tools for the study of Morse theory. The advanced treatment emphasizes analytical rather than topological aspects. In the present chapter we discuss a different viewpoint on geodesics based on calculus of variations. Given a smooth path of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms, is it possible to shorten it by a small variation with fixed endpoints? This question is motivated by the classical theory of geodesics .
