Is it true that any smooth manifold admits a complete riemannian metric? Can you prove it? If not can you give a counter example? Obviously we can always put a riemannian metric on any smmoth manifold the question is does the differentable structure allow us to find a complete one.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
