Talk:Glossary of Riemannian and metric geometry
This glossary is almost entirely useless to an untrained reader (like myself). Perhaps a glossary isn't the place to explain to a novice what, say, conjugate points are, but insofar as Wikipedia is a general—rather than discipline-specific—encyclopedia, there needs to be some way to present these concepts and actually explain them in terms other than their purely mathematical qualities.

Suggested policy regarding glossary usage
Do not link indirectly to this glossary as in [[Glossary of Riemannian and metric geometry|Jacobi field]]. Rather, link verbatim to where you want to go. In this case to [[Jacobi field]]. Then create a redirect from the Jacobi field page to this glossary. This has two principal advantages:
- There may be a large number of broken links to Jacobi field elsewhere in Wikipedia. By creating a redirect page, you fix them all at once.
- If someone comes along later wants to write a real article about Jacobi fields they can just replace the redirect and there are no links to fix.

Concerning "totally convex": the definition actually requires any geodesic to lie within K, see e.g. http://math.berkeley.edu/~alanw/240papers00/zambon.pdf \Mike(z) 08:36, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

Now it redirects to Distance (graph theory), which obviously is not correct. Maybe, geodesic metric space should be an article and geodesic distance have to be redirected there? In any case, please, fix it. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:41, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
