MATH 5230 - Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces Course uri icon



  • Introduces the modern differential geometry of plane curves, space curves, and surfaces in 3-dimensional space. Topics include the Frenet frame, curvature and torsion for space curves; Gauss and mean curvature for surfaces; Gauss and Codazzi equations, and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem. Same as MATH 4230.
