Conlon – Differentiable Manifolds. Dispatched from the UK in 1 business day When will my order arrive? It is somewhat dry, yes but that makes the book concise; think of it as learning the alphabet mannifolds you being to poetry. One usually has already taken a course in topology when getting into manifolds.
Hubbard covers all the necessary linear algebra and presents to you calculus on manifolds, while integrating it into vector calculus. The Introdduction Exact Sequence in Cohomology. A Unified Approach by John Hubbard: Sign up or log in Ot up using Google. The requisite point-set topology is included in an appendix of twenty pages; other appendices review facts from real analysis and linear algebra.
The requisite point-set topology is included in an appendix of twenty pages; other appendices review facts from real analysis and linear algebra. Differential Forms on R N. Number Fields Daniel A. They would have had a far more useful and versatile book if they had separated the introuction and their full solutions into 2 different sections of the book.
Another interesting answers to a similar question are in Teaching myself differential topology and differential geometry You may find interesting other books which are recommended there.
The Mayer -Vietoris Sequence. The requisite point-set topology is included in an appendix of twenty-five pages; other appendices review facts from real analysis and linear algebra. It is only pages long, but the font is extremely small, so there are a lot of things in there.

Warner’s Foundations of Differentiable Manifolds is an ‘older’ classic. The Rank of a Smooth Map. Tu’s book is definitely a great book to read for someone who doesn’t know the first thing about manifolds.
Along the way, the reader acquires the knowledge and skills necessary for further study of geometry and topology. Is this feature helpful?
An Introduction to Manifolds
A very good and underrated book-and available very cheap from Dover! Read more Read less. In this streamlined introduction to the subject, the theory of manifolds is presented with the aim of helping the reader achieve a rapid mastery of the essential topics.
What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? He then expanded out the important essential ones in more detail so that a student who has never seen manifold theory would have a better chance of understanding. This work may be used as a textbook for a one-semester graduate or advanced undergraduate course, as well as by students engaged in self-study.
Thank you for your feedback.
By the end of the book the reader should be able to compute, at least for simple spaces, one of the most basic topological invariants of a manifold, its de Rham cohomology.
Combining aspects of algebra, topology, and analysis, manifolds have also been applied to classical mechanics, general relativity, and quantum field theory. Since this last book is out of print and the publisher does mamifolds longer exist, you may be very interested in an online “low-quality” copy which can be downloaded here the 3 files linked in rapidshare. I’ve been able to compare this book with John Lee’s Introduction to Smooth Manifolds, which seems to be one of the standard texts for an introductory geometry course.
Computation of de Rham Cohomology. Indeed, I propose to use it myself, given that I am one of the non-experts …. A gentle yet rigorous introduction to the subject.
