Create a "map of countries" of any number, shape, and size, or let the computer create a map for you. See if you can create a map that requires two colors, or three colors, or four colors. The notion of a directional derivative of a function from the multivariable calculus is extended in Riemannian geometry to the notion of a covariant derivative of a tensor. Finally, equalsExact(Geometry, double) allows using a tolerance value for point comparison.

Jason Cantarella, Assistant Professor, Ph. Poncelet and his defender Michel Chasles (1793–1880) extended the principle of continuity into the domain of the imagination by considering constructs such as the common chord in two circles that do not intersect. Experiment with other than straight line motions. As classical as the subject is, it is currently undergoing a very vigorous development, interacting strongly with theoretical physics, mechanics, topology, algebraic geometry, symplectic topology, partial differential equations, the calculus of variations, integrable systems, and many other subjects.

The traditional account, preserved in Herodotus’s History (5th century bce), credits the Egyptians with inventing surveying in order to reestablish property values after the annual flood of the Nile. Also included are extensive tables of Lie algebras, Lie algebras of vectors and differential equations taken from the mathematics and mathematical physics literature. Reach the doors of algebraic topology by discovering just how an integer (= the Euler-Poincaré characteristics) associated with a surface gives you a lot of interesting information on the shape of the surface.

This is a classic text with a nice development of the differential geometry relevant to relativity theory. The course is particularly useful for students interested in differential geometry, Lie groups, and global analysis, and serves as a foundation course for work in geometric mechanics and geometric control theory. For Riemannian Geometry I would recommend Jost's "Riemannian Geometry and Geometric Analysis" and Petersen's "Riemannian Geometry".

The problem arose from studying a polynomial equation f (w, z) = 0 and considering how the roots vary as w and z vary. Even though Ehresmann in his original papers from 1951 underlined the conceptual meaning of the notion of an $r$-jet for differential geometry, jets have been mostly used as a purely technical tool in certain problems in the theory of systems of partial differential equations, in singularity theory, in variational calculus and in higher order mechanics.

Over the last thirty years Gromov has made important contributions to diverse areas of mathematics and pioneered new directions in mathematics such as filling Riemannian geometry, almost flat manifolds, word-hyperbolic groups, Carnot geometry and applications to the rigidity of symmetric spaces, to name but a few. It only requires a high school-level knowledge of math. In the third and final section of this brief but dense lecture, Riemann ponders what possible applications his ideas could have for modelling the space we live in, that is, applications to physics.
