Contents Preliminaries: the Riemannian point of view -- The projective model -- Application: conformally flat hypersurfaces -- Application: isothermic and Willmore surfaces -- A quaternionic model -- Application: smooth and discrete isothermic surfaces -- Clifford algebra model -- A Clifford algebra model: Vahlen matrices -- Applications: orthogonal systems, isothermic surfaces
Summary An introduction to the conformal differential geometry of surfaces and submanifolds. The book discusses those aspects of the geometry of surfaces that only refer to an angle measurement but not to a length measurement. The book presents different methods (models) for thinking about geometry and performing computations
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 384-407) and index
