This volume covers local as well as global differential geometry of curves and surfaces. *Makes extensive use of elementary linear algebra - with emphasis on basic geometrical facts rather than on machinery or random details. *Stresses the basic ideas of differential geometry - regular surfaces, the Gauss map, covariant derivatives. *Includes a large number of fully-worked examples.
