In addition to normal tutorials, time could be arranged in a graphics
computer lab to learn to use a computer algebra package for
calculations in differential
geometry and for plotting of surfaces and curves. The figures above were
created using the software Mathematica and freely available
packages accompanying the
book by Alfred Gray, Modern Differential Geometry of
Curves and Surfaces. Boca Raton:
CRC Press, Second Edition, 1998.
Introductory Mathematica packages, and some for curves and surfaces
can be found via the webpage
Mathematica for curves and surfaces.
