Noncommutative geometry, encouraged by way of quantum physics, describes singular areas via their noncommutative coordinate algebras and metric buildings by way of Dirac-like operators. Such metric geometries are defined mathematically by way of Connes' concept of spectral triples. those lectures, introduced at an EMS summer time institution on noncommutative geometry and its purposes, offer an summary of spectral triples according to examples.
