The differential geometry of curves and surfaces in Euclidean area has involved mathematicians because the time of Newton. right here the authors take a unique process by way of casting the idea right into a new mild, that of singularity concept. the second one version of this profitable textbook has been completely revised all through and features a multitude of latest routines and examples. a brand new ultimate bankruptcy has been further that covers lately built recommendations within the category of capabilities of a number of variables, a topic critical to many functions of singularity thought. additionally during this moment variation are new sections at the Morse lemma and the type of aircraft curve singularities. the single must haves for college students to stick with this textbook are a familiarity with linear algebra and complicated calculus. hence will probably be valuable for somebody who would prefer an creation to the trendy theories of catastrophes and singularities.

**Lectures on Symplectic Geometry**

The objective of those notes is to supply a quick creation to symplectic geometry for graduate scholars with a few wisdom of differential geometry, de Rham idea and classical Lie teams. this article addresses symplectomorphisms, neighborhood kinds, touch manifolds, appropriate nearly advanced buildings, Kaehler manifolds, hamiltonian mechanics, second maps, symplectic relief and symplectic toric manifolds.

"Geometry and Physics" addresses mathematicians eager to comprehend sleek physics, and physicists eager to examine geometry. It supplies an creation to fashionable quantum box concept and comparable parts of theoretical high-energy physics from the point of view of Riemannian geometry, and an creation to fashionable geometry as wanted and used in sleek physics.

**Lectures on the geometry of manifolds**

An creation to the idea of partially-ordered units, or "posets". The textual content is gifted in quite a casual demeanour, with examples and computations, which depend on the Hasse diagram to construct graphical instinct for the constitution of countless posets. The proofs of a small variety of theorems is integrated within the appendix.

**Differential Geometry and Topology, Discrete and Computational Geometry**

The purpose of this quantity is to offer an creation and evaluation to differential topology, differential geometry and computational geometry with an emphasis on a few interconnections among those 3 domain names of arithmetic. The chapters supply the heritage required to start learn in those fields or at their interfaces.
