About the Author

Kristopher Tapp is Professor of Mathematics at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. The recipient of numerous teaching awards, he is particularly interested in communicating ideas from mathematics to students in other fields. His research extends from differential geometry to the mathematical study of gerrymandering. Previous books include Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces, which appears in Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics.


"This book has much to recommend it. The material is presented clearly and enthusiastically ... . there are a lot of well-chosen exercises, ranging from very easy to more challenging. ... this is a well-written book, covering interesting material, that can serve a number of possible audiences. ... many math majors will never have seen many of the topics discussed in this book ... technical details by the instructor, serve as a useful text for a capstone course for majors." (Mark Hunacek MAA Reviews, November 14, 2021)
