By R. W. R. Darling

This 1994 e-book introduces the instruments of contemporary differential geometry, external calculus, manifolds, vector bundles and connections, to complex undergraduate and starting graduate scholars in arithmetic, physics and engineering. The booklet covers either classical floor thought and the fashionable idea of connections and curvature, and encompasses a bankruptcy on purposes to theoretical physics. the single necessities are multivariate calculus and linear algebra; no wisdom of topology is believed. The strong and concise calculus of differential types is used all through. by utilizing various concrete examples, the writer develops computational abilities within the regular Euclidean context sooner than exposing the reader to the extra summary environment of manifolds. There are approximately 2 hundred routines, making the booklet excellent for either lecture room use and self-study.
