Contact Geometry

Contact Geometry
by Hansjoerg Geiges

Publisher: arXiv 2004
Number of pages: 86

This is an introductory text on the more topological aspects of contact geometry, written for the Handbook of Differential Geometry vol. 2. After discussing (and proving) some of the fundamental results of contact topology (neighbourhood theorems, isotopy extension theorems, approximation theorems), I move on to a detailed exposition of the original proof of the Lutz-Martinet theorem.
