Summary

This volume covers local as well as global differential geometry of curves and surfaces.

Makes extensive use of elementary linear algebra -- with emphasis on basic geometrical facts rather than on machinery or random details.

Stresses the basic ideas of differential geometry -- regular surfaces, the Gauss map, covariant derivatives.

Includes a large number of fully-worked examples.

Table of Contents

1. Curves: Parametrized Curves.

2. Regular Surfaces: Regular Surfaces; Inverse Images of Regular Values.

3. Geometry of the Gauss Map: Definition of the Gauss Map and Its Fundamental Properties.

4. Intrinsic Geometry of Surfaces: Isometrics; Conformal Maps.

5. Global Differential Geometry: Rigidity of the Sphere.
