Book Description
The only book that introduces differential geometry through a combination of an intuitive geometric foundation, a rigorous connection with the standard formalisms, computer exercises with Maple, and a problemsbased approach.
Starting with basic geometric ideas, Differential Geometry uses basic intuitive geometry as a starting point to make the material more accessible and the formalism more meaningful. The book presents topics through problems to provide readers with a deeper understanding. And, it introduces hyperbolic geometry in the first chapter rather than in a closing chapter as in other books. An important reference and resource book for any reader who needs to understand the foundations of differential geometry.
About the Authors David W. Henderson was a Professor Emeritus of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at Cornell University. His work ranges from the study of algebraic geometry, Persian history of mathematics and exploratory mathematics for teaching prospective mathematics teachers.

Differential Geometry: From Elastic Curves to Willmore Surfaces
This open access book covers the main topics for a course on the differential geometry of curves and surfaces. There is a strong focus on variational problems, ranging from elastic curves to surfaces that minimize area, or the Willmore functional.

Discrete Differential Geometry (Alexander I. Bobenko)
An emerging field of Discrete Differential Geometry (DDG) aims at the development of discrete equivalents of notions and methods of classical differential geometry. No knowledge of differential geometry is expected.

Advances in Discrete Differential Geometry (Alexander I. Bobenko)
It surveys the fascinating connections between discrete models in differential geometry and complex analysis, integrable systems and applications in computer graphics and is illustrated to convince readers it's both beautiful and useful.

Spectral Geometry of Graphs (Pavel Kurasov)
This open access book gives a systematic introduction into the Spectral Theory of differential operators on metric graphs. Main focus is on the fundamental relations between the spectrum and the geometry of the underlying graph.

New Directions in Geometric and Applied Knot Theory
The aim of this book is to present recent results in both theoretical and applied Knot Theory  which are at the same time stimulating for leading researchers in the ﬁeld as well as accessible to nonexperts.

Sheaf Theory through Examples (Daniel Rosiak)
Taking an applied category theory perspective, this book provides an approachable introduction to elementary sheaf theory and examines applications. It seeks to bridge the powerful results of sheaf theory as used by mathematicians and realworld applications.

Geometry with an Introduction to Cosmic Topology
The text uses Mobius transformations in the extended complex plane to define and investigate these three candidate geometries, thereby providing a natural setting in which to express results common to them all, as well as results that encapsulate key differences.

Topology without Tears (Sidney A. Morris)
General topology is the branch of topology dealing with the basic settheoretic definitions and constructions used in topology. The aim of this is to provide a thorough grouding of general topology. It offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology.
