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.
