This book expresses the full understanding of Weyl's formula for the volume of a tube, its roots and its implications. Historical notes and Mathematica drawings have been added to this revised second edition.

From the reviews:

"Will do much to make Weyl's tube formula more accessible to modern readers.... A high point is the presentation of estimates for the volumes of tubes in ambient Riemannian manifolds whose curvature is bounded above or below."

Review:

"The new book by Alfred Gray will do much to make Weyl's tube formula more accessible to modern readers. The first five chapters give a careful and thorough discussion of each step in the derivation and its application to the Gauss–Bonnet formula. Gray's pace is quite leisurely, and a gradualte student who has completed a basic differential geometry course will have little difficulty following the presentation.

In the remaining chapters of the book, one can find an extension of Weyl's tube formula to complex submanifolds of complex projective space, power series expansions for tube volumes, and the 'half-tube formula' for hypersurfaces. A high point is the presentation of estimates for the volumes of tubes in ambient Riemannian manifolds whose curvature is bounded above or below."
