Lectures on Differential Geometry. This is another merit of the book for me.

What is the meaning of differentiation in a differentiable manifold? Please someone tell me a book for Differential Geometry more advanced than Carmo’s book but readable esp. In addition, there is a somewhat large number of typos in the book, some of which are quite annoying. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Groups and spaces are intimately related. Pure and Applied Mathematics Book Paperback: Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: I have just finished the book “Manfredo P.

We cannot compare A with B if we don’t know what B is.

MA 562 Introduction to Differential Geometry and Topology

But overall, this chapter diffeeential seventh provides a differsntial and quick acquaintance with this vast part of geometry. Immediately, the book deals with submanifolds and submersions, vector fields and their one parameter flows, the Lie algebra of smooth vector fields and the Frobenius theorem. Cook May 30 ’15 at 2: In addition to teaching at Washington University, he taught courses in subjects related to this text at the University of Cordoba Argentinathe University of Strasbourg Franceand the University of Perugia Italy.


Kennington 1, 7 It starts reviewing the necessary tools of analysis inverse and implicit function theorems, constant rank theorem, existence and unicity of ordinary differential equations.

In this text the author draws on his extensive experience in teaching this subject to minimize these difficulties. From the Back Cover Differentiable manifolds and the differential and integral calculus of their associated structures, such as vectors, tensors, and differential forms are of great importance in many areas of mathematics and its applications.

That is the point I want to look into in detail in the future.

I would add one for the sake of physics. It is rigorous, mostly readable, and covers a lot of ground without being overwhelming.

Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. The second edition of An Introduction to Differentiable Manifolds and Riemannian Geometry, Revised has sold over 6, copies since publication in and this revision will make it even more useful.

Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. This is a well-written book for a first course in geometru. The treatment is elegant and efficient. Maybe, an additional chapter is lacking, kind of a step further: Crittenden, Geometry of Manifolds. By the way, as littleO sort of suggested, there are a number of directions other than differential geometry which you could take. Share your thoughts with other customers. So, if you are interested in algebraic topology, you could read that, or a number of other references too.
