This publication provides the classical conception of curves within the airplane and three-d area, and the classical conception of surfaces in three-d area. It can pay specific realization to the ancient improvement of the speculation and the initial methods that aid modern geometrical notions. It encompasses a bankruptcy that lists a really large scope of aircraft curves and their houses. The booklet ways the edge of algebraic topology, supplying an built-in presentation totally available to undergraduate-level students.

At the top of the seventeenth century, Newton and Leibniz built differential calculus, hence making to be had the very wide selection of differentiable capabilities, not only these created from polynomials. in the course of the 18th century, Euler utilized those rules to set up what's nonetheless this present day the classical conception of such a lot normal curves and surfaces, mostly utilized in engineering. input this attention-grabbing international via awesome theorems and a large offer of unusual examples. achieve the doorways of algebraic topology via learning simply how an integer (= the Euler-Poincaré features) linked to a floor offers loads of fascinating details at the form of the outside. And penetrate the interesting international of Riemannian geometry, the geometry that underlies the speculation of relativity.

The ebook is of curiosity to all those that train classical differential geometry as much as fairly a complicated point. The bankruptcy on Riemannian geometry is of serious curiosity to those that need to “intuitively” introduce scholars to the hugely technical nature of this department of arithmetic, particularly whilst getting ready scholars for classes on relativity.
