Differential Geometry

  • J. M. Selig
Part of the Monographs in Computer Science book series (MCS)


This final chapter is slightly different in character from the preceding ones. The aim is to present some less elementary examples. The examples are loosely related by their use of some concepts from differential geometry, hence the title. We will begin by looking at some differential geometry on the manifold of the group S E(3).
