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.

The topics include: Spaces with a non-vanishing curvature tensor that admit a group of automorphisms of the maximum order; Groups of transformations in generalized spaces; Global properties of the groups of motions in a compact Riemannian space...

This paper introduced undergraduates to the Atiyah-Singer index theorem. It includes a statement of the theorem, an outline of the easy part of the heat equation proof. It includes counting lattice points and knot concordance as applications.

Differential geometry is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with informal symbol manipulation. We use computer programs to communicate a precise understanding of the computations in differential geometry.
