Written primarily for readers who have completed the standard first courses in calculus and linear algebra, Elementary Differential Geometry, Second Edition provides an introduction to the geometry of curves and surfaces. Although the popular First Edition has been extensively modified, this Second Edition maintains the elementary character of that volume, while providing an introduction to the use of computers and expanding discussion on certain topics. Further emphasis has been placed on topological properties, properties of geodesics, singularities of vector fields, and the theorems of Bonnet and Hadamard. For readers with access to the symbolic computation programs, Mathematica or Maple, the book includes approximately 30 optional computer exercises. These are not intended as an essential part of the book, but rather an extension. No computer skill is necessary to take full advantage of this comprehensive text.
