This is an introduction to some of the analytic aspects of quantum cohomology. The small quantum cohomology algebra, regarded as an example of a Frobenius manifold, is described without going into the technicalities of a rigorous definition.

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.

These notes introduce the beautiful theory of Gaussian geometry i.e. the theory of curves and surfaces in three dimensional Euclidean space. The text is written for students with a good understanding of linear algebra and real analysis.
