Synopsis:

The goal of the lecture is an introduction to the differential geometry of simple manifolds - curves and two-dimensional surfaces. The basic concepts for the curves are introduced Frenets formulae are explained. In the surface theory we introduce first and second fundamental forms and mean and Gaussian curvature. Essential part of the lecture are the examples calculated by students

Requirements:

Differential calculus with several varaibles.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Examples and definition of curves

2.Plane curves, natural equation
