Differential geometry studies local and global properties of curved spaces.
Topics of the lecture will be:
* curves and surfaces in Euclidean space,
* metrics and (Riemannian) manifolds,
* surface tension and notions of curvature,
* vector fields, tensors and covariant derivative,
* geodesic curves and the exponential map,
* Gauß-Bonnet theorem and topology,
* discrete differential geometry.
