Tubes presents a comprehensive examination of Weyl's tube volume formula, its roots, and its implications. It includes a careful and thorough discussion of each step in the derivation and its application to the Gauss-Bonnet formula. This second edition includes added historical notes and figures in Mathematica.

Graduate students with a basic knowledge of differential geometry will benefit from this text, as will researchers and instructors in analysis, differential geometry, topology, and mathematical physics. Contents
