Differential geometry is the study of geometry using calculus.
Initially and up to the middle of the nineteenth century, differential geometry was studied from the extrinsic point of view: curves, surfaces were considered as lying in a Euclidean space of higher dimension (for example a surface in an ambient space of three dimensions).
A vector field is a function from a manifold to the disjoint union of its tangent spaces (this union is itself a manifold known as the tangent bundle), such that at each point, the value is an element of the tangent space at that point.

 35: Partial differential equations
Like ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations are equations to be solved in which the unknown element is a function, but in PDEs the function is one of several variables, and so of course the known information relates the function and its partial derivatives with respect to the several variables.
Linear differential equations occur perhaps most frequently in applications (in settings in which a superposition principle is appropriate.) When these differential equations are first-order, they share many features with ordinary differential equations.
For example, integral techniques (solving a differential equation by computing a convolution, say) lead to integral operators (transforms on functions spaces); these and differential operators lead in turn to general pseudodifferential operators on function spaces.
