|This book is not an exhaustive introduction to projective dierential
geometry or a survey of its recent developments. It is addressed to the
reader who wishes to cover a greater distance in a short time and arrive
at the front line of contemporary research. This book can serve as a basis
for graduate topics courses. Exercises play a prominent role while historical
and cultural comments relate the subject to a broader mathematical context.
Parts of this book have been used for topic courses and expository lectures
for undergraduate and graduate students in France, Russia and the USA.|
