MATH 4550 - Topics in Geometry

3 Credits (3 Contact Hours)
Covers a variety of geometries, such as Euclidean, hyperbolic, projective, and spherical. The intrinsic properties of these spaces, such as their geodesics and isometries, are studied. Other topics include differential geometry of curves and surfaces, Gaussian curvature, and the celebrated Gauss-Bonnet theory linking geometry with topology. Preq: MATH 2060  and MATH 3110 ; and either MATH 1190  or MATH 3190 .

This 4000-level course has a 6000-level counterpart. Students should refer to the Graduate Announcements for the 6000-level description and requirements.
