These notes give an informal and leisurely introduction to \(\mathrm {G}_2\) geometry for beginners. A special emphasis is placed on understanding the special linear algebraic structure in 7 dimensions that is the pointwise model for \(\mathrm {G}_2\) geometry, using the octonions. The basics of \(\mathrm {G}_2\)-structures are introduced, from a Riemannian geometric point of view, including a discussion of the torsion and its relation to curvature for a general \(\mathrm {G}_2\)-structure, as… Expand
