This booklet is an advent to twistor thought and sleek geometrical methods to space-time constitution on the graduate or complicated undergraduate point. the alternative of fabric offered has advanced from graduate lectures given in London and Oxford and the authors have aimed to preserve the casual tone of these lectures. The e-book will supply graduate scholars with an creation to the literature of twistor idea, presupposing a few wisdom of distinct relativity and differential geometry. it is going to even be of use for a quick path on space-time constitution independently of twistor conception. The physicist will be brought lightly to a couple of the maths which has proved important in those parts, and the mathematician will be proven the place sheaf cohomology and intricate manifold thought can be utilized in physics.
