Lecture slides:

Current status: As of the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown we had gotten up to slide 11 of batch 4 (curvature).


Assignments:

These dates are indicative and somewhat elastic.)
  • ps1-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 1 of 6 (Nominally due just as we went into lockdown; now due when classes restart on Tues 28 April.)
  • ps2-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 2 of 6 (Now due Friday 1 May)
  • ps3-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 3 of 6 (Due Friday 8 May)
  • ps4-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 4 of 6 (Due Friday 15 May)
  • ps5-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 5 of 6 (Due Friday 22 May)
  • ps6-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 6 of 6 (Due Friday 29 May)

Exam/Test:

There will be a take-home exam in early June; I plan to make that worth 20% of the total grade; the assignments will be worth 80% of the total grade.

Contacting me:

The surest way to contact me is by e-mail.

I do have Zoom and Skype access, but it would be better to first coordinate a time via e-mail.
