The goal was to give beginning graduate students an introduction to some of the most important basic facts and ideas in minimal surface theory. Prerequisites: the reader should know basic complex analysis and elementary differential geometry.

The authors present the results of their development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems.

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.
