  • Differential Geometry: A Geometric Introduction

    This is 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 problems-based approach.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 non-experts.

  • 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 real-world 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 set-theoretic 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.
