Analytic and Projective Geometry
This is a course of the
Berlin Mathematical School
held in English.
The first lecture will be on Monday 17.10, the first Tutorial on Wednesday 26.10. and Thursday 27.10. Rooms will be announced on this website.
There will be no tutorials on Wed 15 and Thu 16 of February because I'm (Thilo) ill. Sorry. The certificates (Scheine) can be collected at Jean Downes' office (MA728, 9:30-11:30).
There will be no tutorials on Wed 1 and Thu 2 of February because I'm (Thilo) ill. Sorry.
Exercise 1 on sheet 6 is now easier and correct. See corrected
In exercise 4 on sheet 1, p needs to be a pole of the boundary of
the hemisphere Hp. See corrected version below.
The lecture on monday will be in the main building to the right in room
H0106. There were no bigger rooms available in the math building - sorry.
Rooms for the tutorials will hopefully be announced tomorrow.
Euclidean and non-euclidean geometry: spherical, hyperbolic,
projective, Möbius, and Lie geometry. The continuation is
Geometry II: Discrete Differential Geometry.
The exercise sheets can be found
First exercise sheet will be available on Wed 26.10.
To get a certificate for the tutorial, you need to satisfactorily complete
60% of the homework assignments.
