#### Speaker:

Liviu Nicolaescu
#### Title:

The many faces of the Gauss-Bonnet theorem
#### Abstract:

The Gauss-Bonnet theorem, like few others in
geometry, is the source of many fundamental discoveries which
are now part of the everyday language of the modern geometer.
This is an informal survey of some of the most fertile ideas
which grew out of the attempts to better understand the meaning
of this remarkable theorem.
