MATH 42 Differential Geometry I

This course will cover curves and surfaces in Euclidean 3-dimensional space. Topics include curvature and torsion of curves, the Frenet-Serret equations, Gaussian and mean curvature of surfaces, geodesics and parallel transport, isometries and Gauss's Theorem Egregium, the Riemann Curvature tensor. One or more of the following topics will be studied if time permits: vector fields, tangent bundles, hypersurfaces, connections, and curvature. Offered in alternate years.

Instructor

Prerequisite

MATH 22 or permission of the instructor, and MATH 23.

Distributive and/or World Culture

QDS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
