One of the most widely used texts in its field this volume introduces the differential geometry of curves and surfaces in both local and global aspects the presentation departs from the traditional approach with its more extensive use of elementary linear algebra and its emphasis on basic geometrical facts rather than machinery or random details. Differential geometry a first course in curves and surfaces preliminary version summer 2016 theodore shifrin university of georgia dedicated to the memory of shiing shen chern the fundamental concept underlying the geometry of curves is the arclength of a parametrized curve definition. This concise guide to the differential geometry of curves and surfaces can be recommended to first year graduate students strong senior students and students specializing in geometry the material is given in two parallel streams the first stream contains the standard theoretical material on differential geom etry of curves and surfaces. Curves on a surface which minimize length between the endpoints are called geodesics they are the shape that an elastic band stretched between the two points would take mathematically they are described using partial differential equations from the calculus of variations the differential geometry of surfaces revolves around the study of .
