Riemannian geometry methods have recently contributed to developing optimization algorithms by exploiting the intrinsic geometric structure of the constraint set. In the present survey, gradient and subgradient descent algorithms on a Riemannian manifold are discussed with applications to robotics and multi antenna communication. Finally, gradient descent algoritms for dextrous hand grasping and sphere packing problems on Grassmann manifolds are given.
