Differential manifolds are the underlying objects of study in much of advanced calculus and analysis. Topics such as line and surface integrals, divergence and curl of vector fields, and Stoke's and Green's theorems find their most natural setting in manifold theory. Riemannian plane geometry can be visualized as the geometry on the surface of a sphere in which "lines" are taken to be great circle arcs.
