with ϕ(p) = q. Let the coefficients of the first fundamental form for ϕ at q

are E = 3, F = −2 and G = 7. Let α1 , α2 be two regular curves in U ⊂ R2

with α1 (0) = α2 (0) = p and α10 (0) =< 1, 0 > and α20 (0) =< 1, 1 >.

Compute cos θ, where θ is the angle between the images of these two curves

in S at q.

2) (20 pts) Let ϕ : R2 → R3 be a parametrization of the torus.

a. Compute the first and second fundamental form of the torus for ϕ.

b. Compute the Gaussian curvature K(u, v) for any point p = ϕ(u, v).

π

c. Decide whether u = 0 and u = 2

curves are geodesic or not.

3) (20 pts) Let S be a surface in R3 , and α is a regular curve which is a

line of curvature in S. Then show that,

a. N 0 (t) = λ(t)α0 (t) for any t where N (t) = N (α(t)) with N is the unit

normal of S.

4) (15 pts) Let S be the unit sphere centered at origin in R3 , and P be the

plane {z = 21 }. Let α be the curve which is the intersection of S and P , i.e.

α = S ∩ P . Then,

at any point p ∈ α.

b. Compute the holonomy of α.

5) (15 pts) Prove or give a counterexample: Is S is a surface with Gauss-

ian curvature K > 0, then the curvature of any regular curve α ⊂ S is

everywhere positive.

6) a. (10 pts) Write the statements of Global and Local Gauss-Bonnet

Theorems. Write the definition of holonomy.

a disk. Show that for any two points p, q ∈ S, the parallel transport of a

vector in Tp S to a vector in Tq S is independent of the path from p to q if

and only if the Gaussian curvature is 0 everywhere in S.

(Hint: Use the relation between holonomy and Gaussian curvature)
