Created particularly for graduate scholars, this introductory treatise on differential geometry has been a hugely profitable textbook for a few years. Its strangely targeted and urban method features a thorough clarification of the geometry of curves and surfaces, targeting difficulties that would be such a lot worthwhile to scholars. 1909 version.

This booklet includes the notes of 5 brief classes added on the "Centro Internazionale Matematico Estivo" consultation "Integral Geometry, Radon Transforms and complicated research" held in Venice (Italy) in June 1996: 3 of them take care of numerous elements of critical geometry, with a standard emphasis on a number of different types of Radon transforms, their homes and functions, the opposite proportion a pressure on CR manifolds and comparable difficulties.

Throughout the educational 12 months 1995/96, i used to be invited by way of the Scuola Normale Superiore to offer a chain of lectures. the aim of those notes is to make the underlying financial difficulties and the mathematical conception of external differential platforms available to a bigger variety of humans. it's the goal of those notes to move over those effects at a extra leisurely velocity, preserving in brain that mathematicians aren't conversant in financial thought and that only a few humans have learn Elie Cartan.
