Course objectives
The goal of the course is a detailed analysis of hands-on approaches to the subject matter presented in the lectures on Differential Geometry I and clarifying less trivial aspects thereof for improving knowledge and skills of students with emphasis on their individual work. Solving certain problems may involve the use of computer algebra software (Maple).
  • Smooth manifolds: implicit versus parametrical description of smooth manifolds, examples; embedding and immersion, examples; blow-up, connected sum and some less known examples of manifolds; Riemann surfaces as an introduction to complex differential geometry.
    Tangent and cotangent bundle: vector fields, flows, integral curves, Lie derivative of functions and vector fields, examples; Frobenius theorem and its applications; differential forms and operations on them, examples; exterior differential systems, examples.
