**An informal introduction to the ideas and concepts of noncommutative geometry**

by Thierry Masson

**Publisher**: arXiv 2006**Number of pages**: 56

**Description**:

This informal introduction is an extended version of a three hours lecture given at the 6th Peyresq meeting "Integrable systems and quantum field theory". In this text, we make an overview of some of the mathematical results which motivated the development of what is called noncommutative geometry.
