Here’s our first set of slides, which gives an overview of the course, and dives into our first example: curvature of curves in the plane.
Welcome to the website for 15-458/858 (Discrete Differential Geometry). Here you’ll find course notes, lecture slides, and homework (see links on the right).

A few things to note:
- You will be subscribed to receive email notification about new posts, comments, etc.
- You can ask questions by leaving a comment on a post. If you’re apprehensive about asking questions in public, feel free to register under a pseudonym.
- Otherwise, please associate a picture to your profile by registering your email address at Gravatar.com—doing so will help us better recognize you in class!
- You can include mathematical notation in your questions using standard $\LaTeX$ syntax. For instance, when enclosed in a pair of dollar signs, an expression like \int_M K dA = 2\pi\chi gets typeset as $\int_M K dA = 2\pi\chi$.
