The articles on differential geometry and partial differential equations include a general survey article by the editor on the relationship of the two fields and more specialized articles on topics including harmonic mappings, isoperimetric and Poincaré inequalities, metrics with specified curvature properties, the Monge-Arnpere equation, L 2.

I suggest Christian Bär Elementary Differential Geometry, it's a rather modern treatment of the topic and the notation used is (almost) the same as the one used in abstract (semi) Riemannian geometry.
For beginning geometry there are two truly wonderful books, Barrett O'neill's Elementary Differential Geometry and Singer and Thorpe's Lecture Notes on Elementary Topology and Geometry. Singer and Thorpe are well known mathematicians and wrote this book for undergraduates to introduce them to geometry from the modern view point. ADDITION: I have compiled what I think is a definitive collection of listmanias at Amazon for a best selection of books an references, mostly in increasing order of difficulty, in almost any branch of geometry and topology. In particular the books I recommend below for differential topology and differential geometry; I hope to fill in commentaries for each title as I have the time in the future. Seminar on Differential Geometry. (AM), Volume by Shing-Tung Yau, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.5/5(1). KEY WORDS: Curve, Frenet frame, curvature, torsion, hypersurface, funda-mental forms, principal curvature, Gaussian curvature, Minkowski curvature, manifold, tensor eld, connection, geodesic curve SUMMARY: The aim of this textbook is to give an introduction to di er-ential geometry. It is based on the lectures given by the author at E otv os.
There’s a choice when writing a differential geometry textbook. You can choose to develop the subject with or without coordinates. Each choice has its strengths and weaknesses. Using a lot of coordinates has the advantage of being concrete and “re. Natural Operations in Differential Geometry. This book is a monographical work on natural bundles and natural operators in differential geometry and this book tries to be a rather comprehensive textbook on all basic structures from the theory of jets which appear in different branches of differential geometry.

(This was the set book for the Open University course M 'Differential Geometry'; I have added the old OU course units to the back of the book after the Index) Acrobat 7 Pdf Mb. Scanned by artmisa using Canon DRC + flatbed option. The fundamental concept underlying the geometry of curves is the arclength of a parametrized curve. Deﬁnition. If ˛WŒa;b!R3 is a parametrized curve, then for any a t b, we deﬁne its arclength from ato tto be s.t/ D Zt a k˛0.u/kdu. That is, the distance a particle travels—the arclength of its trajectory—is the integral of its speed.
