Geometry / Topology

Geometry originated from the study of shapes and spaces and has now a much wider scope, reaching into higher dimensions and non-Euclidean geometries. Topology, combined with contemporary geometry, is also widely applied to such problems as coloring maps, distinguishing knots and classifying surfaces and their higher dimensional analogs. Subjects of geometry include differential geometry, algebraic geometry, differential topology, and computational geometry.
