Abstract

DIFFERENTIAL geometry is a fascinating subject, because it gives us vivid and picturesque embodiments of theorems obtained by the combination of several branches of pure analysis, such as algebra, function-theory, and the infinitesimal calculus. It presents us with problems of all degrees of difficulty, from the comparatively simple theory of curvature and torsion to the provokingly difficult question of geodesies.
