**Title:** Introduction to Non-Commutative Geometry (NCG) via examples

**Speaker:**Kalyan B. Sinha, JNCASR, Bangalore

**Abstract:** Some geometric properties of a few simple spaces are encoded into
properties of the commutative algebra of functions over such spaces and these
are then used to study "geometric quantities" of some non-commutative algebras,
which are to be thought of non-commutative spaces. We end with some of the ideas
from Connes formulation of NCG.
