This book surveys the differential geometry of varieties with degenerate Gauss maps, using moving frames and exterior differential forms as well as tensor methods. The authors illustrate the structure of varieties with degenerate Gauss maps, determine the singular points and singular varieties, find focal images and construct a classification of the varieties with degenerate Gauss maps.
