MAT9510 – Geometric structures

Course content

Study of geometric structures, primarily in two dimentions.Subjects that are covered is classical geometries, with emphasis on hyperbolic geometry, topological classification of surfaces, differential geometry,surfaces with constant curvature, Gauss-Bonnets theorem.

Learning outcome

The course is basic for further studies in topology and geometry, as well as parts of algebraic geometry and analysis.

Admission

PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
