MATH 433 - Introduction to Differential Geometry
Section: 001
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Mathematics (MATH)
Department: LSA Mathematics
Requirements & Distribution:
Waitlist Capacity:
Advisory Prerequisites:
MATH 215 (or 255 or 285), and 217.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course is about the analysis of curves and surfaces in 2- and 3-space using the tools of calculus and linear algebra. There will be many examples discussed, including some which arise in engineering and physics applications. Emphasis will be placed on developing intuition and learning to use calculations to verify and prove theorems. Students need a good background in multivariable calculus (Math 215) and linear algebra (preferably Math 217). Some exposure to differential equations (Math 216 or Math 316) is helpful but not absolutely necessary.
