Lovett, “ Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces ,” A K Peters, 2010. It is helpful, as a matter of notation first, to consider differentiation as an abstract operation, accepting a function and returning another (in the style of a higher-order function in computer science). Especially noteworthy is its description of actions of lie algebras on manifolds: the best I have read so far. This easy-to-read, generously illustrated textbook presents an elementary introduction to differential geometry with emphasis on geometric results.

In several ancient cultures there developed a form of geometry suited to the relationships between lengths, areas, and volumes of physical objects. The vehicle for doing so is the notorious and unjustly vilified “scheme.” Algebraic geometry has connections just as far ranging as those of its differential cousin. For example, we want be able to decide whether two given surfaces are homeomorphic or not.

In mathematics, geometry and topology is an umbrella term for geometry and topology, as the line between these two is often blurred, most visibly in local to global theorems in Riemannian geometry, and results like the Gauss–Bonnet theorem and Chern-Weil theory. Then you can perform what's called a knot surgery by taking out tubular nbhd. of that torus and gluing it back with diffeomorphism that embeds the chosen knot inside your M^4.

Source code to experiment with the system will be posted later. [June 9, 2013] Some expanded notes [PDF] from a talk given on June 5 at an ILAS meeting. It is closely related with differential topology and with the geometric aspects of the theory of differential equations. I am interested in stable and unstable algebraic K-Theory. The main result of the paper is a general description of the umbilic and normally flat immersions: Given a hypersurface $f$ and a point $O$ in the $(n+1)$-space, the immersion $(\nu,\nu\cdot(f-O))$, where $\nu$ is the co-normal of $f$, is umbilic and normally flat, and conversely, any umbilic and normally flat immersion is of this type.

More specifically, in mathematics topological space is defined as a pair (X, T). The stone which we have read was the stone of the altar at Delos. Various methods of construction using other means were devised in the classical period, and efforts, always unsuccessful, using straightedge and compass persisted for the next 2,000 years.

Although none of his writings survives, Thales may well have known about a Babylonian observation that for similar triangles (triangles having the same shape but not necessarily the same size) the length of each corresponding side is increased (or decreased) by the same multiple. I believe this book gives you a solid base in the modern mathematics that are being used among the physicists and mathematicians that you certainly may need to know and from where you will be in a position to further extent (if you wish) into more technical advanced mathematical books on specific topics, also it is self contained but the only shortcoming is that it brings not many exercises but still my advice, get it is a superb book!

These all relate to multivariable calculus; but for the geometric applications must be developed in a way that makes good sense without a preferred coordinate system. In this book, after the statement of the axioms, the ideas considered are those concerning the association of Projective and Descriptive Geometry by means of ideal points, point to point correspondence, congruence, distance, and metrical geometry.

The style is not the strictest, although making the text more reader friendly, it is easy to get confused with which assumptions have been made, and the direction of the proof. The Whitney trick requires 2+1 dimensions, hence surgery theory requires 5 dimensions. Morse theory is another branch of differential topology, in which topological information about a manifold is deduced from changes in the rank of the Jacobian of a function.

On June 10, 1854, Bernhard Riemann treated the faculty of Göttingen University to a lecture entitled Über die Hypothesen, welche der Geomtrie zu Grunde liegen (On the Hypotheses which lie at the foundations of geometry). There are also surprising links to combinatorics through the theory of toric varieties.
