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 GaussBonnet, 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.
