Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2005
Number of pages: 808
The wide variety of topics covered make this volume suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in differential geometry. The subjects covered include minimal and constant-mean-curvature submanifolds, geometric measure theory and the double-bubble conjecture, Lagrangian geometry, numerical simulation of geometric phenomena, applications of mean curvature to general relativity and Riemannian geometry, the isoperimetric problem, the geometry of fully nonlinear elliptic equations and applications to the topology of three-dimensional manifolds.

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.

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.

An exterior differential system is a system of equations on a manifold defined by equating to zero a number of exterior differential forms. This book gives a treatment of exterior differential systems. It includes both the theory and applications.
