Curves and surfaces

Author: Marco Abate; Francesca Tovena
Publisher: Milano : Springer, ©2012.
Series: Unitext, 55.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
The book provides an introduction to Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces. The theory of curves starts with a discussion of possible definitions of the concept of curve, proving in particular the classification of 1-dimensional manifolds. We then present the classical local theory of parametrized plane and space curves (curves in n-dimensional space are discussed in the complementary material): curvature,  Read more...
