Author:Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas
Description: A short article designed to provide an introduction to differential geometry, the language of modern physics and an area of mathematical delight. Typically, one considers sets which are manifolds (that is, locally resemble Euclidean space) and which come equipped with a measure of distances. In particular, this includes classical studies of the curvature of curves and surfaces. Local questions both apply and help study differential equations; global questions often invoke algebraic topology. History, applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus.
