Synthetic Differential Geometry
by Anders Kock
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2006
Number of pages: 241
Synthetic Differential Geometry is a method of reasoning in differential geometry and calculus, where use of nilpotent elements allows the replacement of the limit processes of calculus by purely algebraic notions. In this second edition of Kock's classical text, many notes have been included commenting on new developments.

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.

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.
