### Course description

This is the second quarter of the
introductory sequence in Differential Geometry. We will continue
covering Do Carmo's book with help from the books by Lee and Gallot,
Hulin, Lafontaine
### Prerequisites

250A
### Texts

Riemannian Geometry, By Manfredo P. Do Carmo.

Introduction to Smooth Manifolds, By John M. Lee

Riemannian Geometry, By Sylvestre Gallot, Dominique Hulin, Jacques Lafontaine
### Presentations

This course will feature student
presentations. It is well known that the best way to learn
something is to explain it to others. When we present something to
others, we have to think about it in many different ways and look
at it from different angles. Giving presentations is very
difficult, which is why, when you give presentations, I will not
judge your performance, but will help you learn
the material in the best way possible and also help you learn
how to give presentations. This is a skill that will be very useful in
many different contexts, regardless of what your career goals
are. Any comments will not affect your grade, but will help you learn.

Please prepare your presentations carefully. In particular, please
write detailed notes for your presentations. It is usually a good
idea to have a rehearsal with some of your friends/classmates
before your presentation.
