This volume collects papers based on the lectures given at the
University of Marrakech (Morocco), Faculté des Sciences et Techniques de
Guléliz, in May 2004, in the connection with a School organized by the
Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées
(C.I.M.P.A.) and promoted by the N.A.T.O. Science Programme, Advanced Study
Institute (N.A.T.O. A.S.I.). We received also a financial support from
U.N.E.S.C.O., the I.C.T.P. of Trieste, and I.N.R.I.A. Sophia Antipolis.
The aim of the School was to provide participants with an
introduction and an overview to differential topology, differential geometry
and computational geometry with an emphasis on some interconnections between
these three domains of mathematics. The lecturers gave the background required
to begin research in these fields or at their interfaces. They also introduced
new research domains, old and new conjectures in these different subjects
showing some interactions between other sciences close to mathematics.
