In this paper, we considered the definition of orthonormal basis in Minkowski space, the structure of metric tensor relative to orthonormal basis, procedure of orthogonalization. Contents: Preface; Minkowski Space; Examples of Minkowski Space.

This is the book on a newly emerging field of discrete differential geometry. It surveys the fascinating connections between discrete models in differential geometry and complex analysis, integrable systems and applications in computer graphics.

This is a lecture-based class on the Atiyah-Singer index theorem, proved in the 60's by Sir Michael Atiyah and Isadore Singer. Their work on this theorem lead to a joint Abel prize in 2004. Requirements: Knowledge of topology and manifolds.

The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.
