Website Detail Page

written by Thayer Watkins
This web page is devoted to giving an explanation of Levi-Civita's concepts of vector transport and holonomy, which are important in mathematical physics.  The page is written for a reader with some knowledge of differential geometry. It deals with the movement of a vector along a surface and includes images to explain the concepts.
