This booklet is an creation to twistor idea and glossy geometrical methods to space-time constitution on the graduate or complicated undergraduate point. the alternative of fabric offered has developed from graduate lectures given in London and Oxford and the authors have aimed to hold the casual tone of these lectures. The e-book will offer graduate scholars with an advent to the literature of twistor thought, presupposing a few wisdom of particular relativity and differential geometry. it'll even be of use for a quick direction on space-time constitution independently of twistor conception. The physicist should be brought lightly to a couple of the math which has proved precious in those components, and the mathematician should be proven the place sheaf cohomology and intricate manifold concept can be utilized in physics.
