A technique in geometry (especially algebraic and differential, and by extension to study of pseudo-differential operators) for resolution of singularities. Not to be confused with the formation of si…

Given $t\in I$, the arc length of a regular parametrized curve $\alpha : I \rightarrow {\bf R}^3$, from the point $t_0$, is by definition $$ s(t)=\int_{t_0}^t |\alpha'(t)| dt, $$ where $$|\alpha'(t)| …

Computation of Cauchy principal values of integrals. May be tied in with contour integration, but should be separate from definite-integrals.

The study of geometry of manifolds without appealing to differential calculus. It includes studies of length spaces, Alexandrov spaces, and CAT(k) spaces. The techniques are often applicable to Rieman…
