Title  Elementary differential geometry 
Author(s)  Christian Bar 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010. 
Description  xii, 317p. 
Abstract Note  The link between the physical world and its visualization is geometry. This easytoread, generously illustrated textbook presents an elementary introduction to differential geometry with emphasis on geometric results. Avoiding formalism as much as possible, the author harnesses basic mathematical skills in analysis and linear algebra to solve interesting geometric problems, which prepare students for more advanced study in mathematics and other scientific fields such as physics and computer science. The wide range of topics includes curve theory, a detailed study of surfaces, curvature, variation of area and minimal surfaces, geodesics, spherical and hyperbolic geometry, the divergence theorem, triangulations, and the GaussâBonnet theorem. The section on cartography demonstrates the concrete importance of elementary differential geometry in applications. Clearly developed arguments and proofs, colour illustrations, and over 100 exercises and solutions make this book ideal for courses and selfstudy.
The only prerequisites are one year of undergraduate calculus and linear algebra.
