18.966 Geometry of Manifolds II

Class Info

Differential forms, introduction to Lie groups, the DeRham theorem, Riemannian manifolds, curvature, the Hodge theory. 18.966 is a continuation of 18.965 and focuses more deeply on various aspects of the geometry of manifolds. Contents vary from year to year, and can range from Riemannian geometry (curvature, holonomy) to symplectic geometry, complex geometry and Hodge-Kahler theory, or smooth manifold topology. Prior exposure to calculus on manifolds, as in 18.952, is recommended.

This class has 18.965 as a prerequisite.

18.966 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by T. Colding and P. Seidel.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 2-146.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
