Course of Differential Geometry
by Ruslan Sharipov
Publisher: Samizdat Press 2004
Number of pages: 132
This book is a textbook for the basic course of differential geometry. It is recommended as an introductory material for this subject. The book is devoted to the firs acquaintance with the differential geometry. Therefore it begins with the theory of curves in three-dimensional Euclidean space E. Then the vectorial analysis in E is stated both in Cartesian and curvilinear coordinates, afterward the theory of surfaces in the space E is considered.
