By Francis Borceux

This publication offers the classical thought of curves within the aircraft and third-dimensional house, and the classical thought of surfaces in 3-dimensional area. It will pay specific awareness to the ancient improvement of the speculation and the initial techniques that help modern geometrical notions. It encompasses a bankruptcy that lists a really extensive scope of airplane curves and their houses. The publication methods the edge of algebraic topology, offering an built-in presentation absolutely available to undergraduate-level students.

At the tip of the seventeenth century, Newton and Leibniz built differential calculus, therefore making to be had the very wide variety of differentiable services, not only these created from polynomials. throughout the 18th century, Euler utilized those principles to set up what's nonetheless this present day the classical conception of such a lot common curves and surfaces, principally utilized in engineering. input this attention-grabbing international via outstanding theorems and a large provide of bizarre examples. achieve the doorways of algebraic topology by means of researching simply how an integer (= the Euler-Poincaré features) linked to a floor promises loads of attention-grabbing info at the form of the skin. And penetrate the interesting global of Riemannian geometry, the geometry that underlies the idea of relativity.

The booklet is of curiosity to all those that educate 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.

By De Witt L. Sumners, Nicholas R. Cozzarelli

Geometry and topology are matters regularly thought of to be 'pure' arithmetic. lately, in spite of the fact that, a number of the tools and leads to those components have came upon new software in either wet-lab technological know-how (biology and chemistry) and theoretical physics. Conversely, technological know-how is influencing arithmetic, from posing questions that decision for the development of mathematical versions to exporting theoretical tools of assault on long-standing difficulties of mathematical curiosity. in response to an AMS brief path held in January 1992, this e-book comprises six introductory articles on those interesting new connections. There are articles by means of a chemist and a biologist approximately arithmetic, and 4 articles by means of mathematicians writing approximately science.All are expository and require no particular wisdom of the technology and arithmetic concerned. simply because this booklet communicates the thrill and application of arithmetic examine at an user-friendly point, it really is an exceptional textbook in a sophisticated undergraduate arithmetic direction
