Linear Algebra I & II
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, covariant derivative
- Geodesic curves, exponential map
- Gauß-Bonnet theorem, curvature and topology
- Connection to discrete differential geometry
