Learning outcomes
Knowledge
The student who successfully completes the course will be able to demonstrate a solid knowledge of the elementary differential geometry of curves and surfaces, as well as of the rudiments of degree theory in any dimension. He or she will be able to demonstrate familiarity with the various types of curvatures of a surface embedded in the standard Euclidean space, the theorem of Gauss--Bonnet, the hyperbolic plane, the degree of smooth maps between manifolds and important applications such as the fundamental theorem of algebra, Brouwer's fixed point theorem and the hairy ball theorem.
Assessment criteria of knowledge
In the written test the student must demonstrate his/her knowledge of the course material and to solve simple problems on the course contents. During the oral exam the student must be able to demonstrate his/her knowledge of the course material and be able to discuss the reading material thoughtfully and with propriety of expression.

Methods:

  • Final oral exam
  • Final written exam

Further information:
The examination will consist of two portions: a written test with problems to solve and an oral exam.

Teaching methods

Delivery: face to face

Learning activities:

  • attending lectures

Attendance: Advised
