MATH 426
Differential Topology Fall 2024
Division III Quantitative/Formal Reasoning

Class Details

Differential topology marries the rubber-like deformations of topology with the computational exactness of calculus. This sub eld of mathematics asks and answers questions like “Can you take an integral on the surface of doughnut?” and includes far-reaching applications in relativity and robotics. This tutorial will provide an elementary and intuitive introduction to differential topology. We will begin with the definition of a manifold and end with a generalized understanding of Stokes Theorem.
