Abstract:

In this talk we will explore various classical notions associated with surface geometry. One typical such notion is the curvature of a surface, invented by Gauss in the late 19th century, along with the basic distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic geometry. Much of talk could be understood intuitively, although we will also have occasion to use multivariable calculus.
