given a compact, orientable, n-dim. Riemann manifold, what is a sufficient condition for globally vanishing curvature i.e. global flatness?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can get necessary conditions from the generalized Gauss-Bonnet theorem, but not sufficient ones

thanks in advance
