Title: GENERAL RELATIVITY WITHOUT COORDINATES

Abstract

An approach to the theory of Riemannian manifolds is developed that avoids the use of coordinates. Curved spaces are approximated by higher dimensional analogs of polyhedra. It is noted that this procedure enables condensation of the essential features of topologies like Wheeler's wormhole into a simplified model. (auth)
