Publisher: Columbia University 2008
Number of pages: 103
This new and elegant area of mathematics has exciting applications, as this course demonstrates by presenting practical examples in geometry processing (surface fairing, parameterization, and remeshing) and simulation (of cloth, shells, rods, and fluids).

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.
