Welcome to MATM23 Specialised Course in Differential Geometry, 7.5 credits

 General Information

MATM23 Specialised Course in Differential Geometry is an alternatively compulsory course for a Master of Science degree in mathematics.

This course is an introduction to the beautiful theory of Riemannian Geometrya subject with no lack of interesting examples. They are indeed the key to a good understanding of it and will therefore play a major role throughout the course. Of special interest are the classical Lie groups allowing concrete calculations of many of the abstract notions on the menu.

The teaching consists of lectures.

The module is assessed through an oral examination.
