One of the youngest physical theories, string theory, is also very geometric in flavour. The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic. Often, the reasoning used in geometry itself is of geometric nature, i.e. one reasons with properties of figures (as say is done in classical Euclidean geometry ). No, but you can think up the notion of distance or a norm by something like The fundamental lemma of Sard is proved and yields an elementary proof for the Brouwer fixed point theorem.

People in our group work in several important directions such as algebraic geometry, differential geometry, symplectic geometry, integrable systems, quantum field theory, topology, representation theory, algebraic analysis, and index theorems. We have our own weekly geometry seminar, where people from within the department and visitors from outside present their latest achievements Natural Operations in Differential Geometry. The program will cover not only the mathematical aspects of Hamiltonian systems but also their applications, mainly in space mechanics, physics and chemistry. The mathematical aspects comprise celestial mechanics, variational methods, relations with PDE, Arnold diffusion and computation. The applications concern celestial mechanics, astrodynamics, motion of satellites, plasma physics, accelerator physics, theoretical chemistry, and atomic physics The Geometry of Supermanifolds (Mathematics and Its Applications). Early geometry was a collection of empirically discovered principles concerning lengths, angles, areas, and volumes, which were developed to meet some practical need in surveying, construction, astronomy, and various crafts Foundations of Differential Geometry [Volumes 1 and 2]. Includes lots of material hard to find elsewhere. Vol. 2 has fascinating historical sections. Considers every possible point of view for comparison purposes. Lots of global theorems, chapter on general relativity. They deal more with concepts than computations GLOBAL DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY OF HYPERSURFACES.

Artists use their knowledge of geometry in creating their master pieces. It is a useful groundwork for learning other branches of Mathematics. Students with knowledge of Geometry will have sufficient skills abstracting from the external world. Geometry facilitates the solution of problems from other fields since its principles are applicable to other disciplines Gromov-Hausdorff Distance for Quantum Metric Spaces/Matrix Algebras Converge to the Sphere for Quantum Gromov-Hausdorff Distance.

Algebraic topology and general topology have gone their own ways. The field of algebraic geometry is the modern incarnation of the Cartesian geometry of co-ordinates The Evolution Problem in General Relativity. Includes a simple explanation of genus with an accompanying interactive Exercise on Classification. Dental Dam or Rubber Dam makes an excellent rubber sheet for student investigations. Add a large circle with a suitable marker, then deform it into an ellipse, a square, a triangle, or any other simple closed curve Discrete Subgroups of Semisimple Lie Groups (Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 3. Folge / A Series of Modern Surveys in Mathematics). Moreover, differential topology does not restrict itself necessarily to the study of diffeomorphism Nonlinear and Optimal Control Theory: Lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Cetraro, Italy, June 19-29, 2004 (Lecture Notes in Mathematics). Particular topics of research here are: symplectic geometry and topology including the quantitative and qualitative properties of Lagrangian embeddings ( Mohnke ), spectral properties of Dirac and Laplace operators in the presence of singularities ( Brüning, Schüth ), index theorems for elliptic operators ( Brüning ), isospectrality problems for Riemannian manifolds and orbifolds ( Schüth ), spectral properties of Dirac operators and field quations on manifolds with nonintegrable geometric structures ( Friedrich ), and Dirac operators and spinor field equations, holonomy theory and symmetries on Lorentzian manifolds or other manifolds with indefinite metrics ( Baum ) The Geometry of Physics: An Introduction, 2nd Edition. Because it turns out that when the functions one is using to cut out figures, or describe maps between figures, are restricted to be polynomial, the objects one obtains are quite rigid, in a way very similar to the way more traditional Euclidean geometry figures are rigid. So one has the sensation of doing geometry, rather than topology. (In topology, by contrast, things feel rather fluid, since one is allowed to deform objects in fairly extreme ways without changing their essential topological nature.) And in fact it turns out that there are deeper connections between algebraic and metric geometry: for example, for a compact orientable surface of genus at least 2, it turns out that the possible ways of realizing this surface as an algebraic variety over the complex numbers are in a natural bijection with the possible choices of a constant curvature -1 metric on the surface Analysis and Algebra on Differentiable Manifolds: A Workbook for Students and Teachers (Problem Books in Mathematics). However, the discovery of incommensurable lengths, which contradicted their philosophical views, made them abandon (abstract) numbers in favour of (concrete) geometric quantities, such as length and area of figures. Numbers were reintroduced into geometry in the form of coordinates by Descartes, who realized that the study of geometric shapes can be facilitated by their algebraic representation Lectures on Hermitian-Einstein Metrics for Stable Bundles and Kähler-Einstein Metrics: Delivered at the German Mathematical Society Seminar in Düsseldorf in June, 1986 (Oberwolfach Seminars). The man was a complete loon, but in a good way. The previous review is amazingly perceptive into Bill Burke's personality and thinking. He was not the most discplined writer or lecturer, (I had no less than 4 courses from him) but his insight and intuition could beamazing. I would recommend this book as a companion to something moretraditional. If you are interested in General Relativity, which is whatthe book was suppose to be a precursor for, get Schutz or Misner, Thorneand Wheeler, or Wald Vectore Methods.
