Induced metric

  1. Aug 7, 2012 #1
    hi friends,
    Suppose we have a vector bundle E equipped with a hermitian metric h, and in a subbundle of E noted SE . I would like tocalculate explicitly the induced metric Sh defined on SE. How to proceed?

    It's the same as any other pullback...choose a basis of E and a basis of SE (they should be related by a projection), and do the usual thing.
