Differential GeometryⅡ


Course No.S070101ZJ003     

Course CategoryProfessional Basic Course

Period/Credits 40/2

Prerequisites Advanced Algebra, Linear Algebra, Curve Surface Theory, point Set Topology, Differential Geometry I.

Aims & Requirements

This is the specialized basic course for the master and doctor in correlation specialty of mathematics. It can also be the elective course for the master in correlation specialty such as theoretical physics. The range or modern differential geometry is wide, this course is the improvement of Differential Geometry I, mainly introduce the operator theory, geodesic, the preliminary of complex manifold and complex geometry.

Through this course, hoping the student can master the basic concept and basic skills, understand the modern development of differential geometry, as a basis for further study of modern mathematics and specialty research.
