Slides—Smooth Surfaces

This lecture gives a crash course in the differential geometry of surfaces. There’s of course way more to know about surfaces than we can pack into a single lecture (and we’ll see plenty more later on), but this lecture will cover basic concepts like how to describe a surface and its normals. It also starts to connect surface theory to the other tools we’ve been building up, via vector-valued differential forms.

  1. Is there any information on how lectures will be presented now that the university has suspended in person classes? Will they be available on video in some form?

    Not related to this specific set of slides, but wasn’t sure where to post the question.

    Thanks!
