In the series of volumes which together will constitute the Handbook of Differential Geometry a rather complete survey of the field of differential geometry is given. The different chapters will both deal with the basic material of differential geometry and with research results (old and recent). All chapters are written by experts in the area and contain a large bibliography.I am honored to be asked to write some introductory words on this great collection. While algebra and analysis provide the foundations of mathematics, geometry is at the core. This was already recognized by Euclid, whose book contains aanbsp;...
