Summary "Students and professors of an undergraduate course in the differential geometry will appreciate the clear exposition and comprehensive exercises in this book, that focuses on the geometric properties of curves and surfaces, one-and-two-dimensional objects in Euclidean space. The problems generally relate to questions of local properties (the properties observed as a point on the curve or surface) or global properties (the properties of the object as a whole). Some of the more interesting theorems explore relationships between local and global properties." "A special feature is the availability of accompanying online interactive java applets coordinated with each section. The applets allow students to investigate and manipulate curves and surfaces to develop intuition and to help analyze geometric phenomena."--BOOK JACKET.
