What is Curvature?

Şefika Kuzgun 

Abstract: The aim of this talk is to present some basic ideas of Differential Geometry. I shall define parametrized curves, their tangent vectors and lines, and most importantly their curvatures. I shall also include physical and intuitive interpretations. Then some examples will be provided. Finally, I will mention an important theorem called the Gauss-Bonnet theorem. Only a rudimentary knowledge of calculus is needed to follow this talk.
