Barden & Thomas's "Introduction to Differential Manifolds" has the broadest coverage of any introductory graduate text in differential topology that I've Introduction to manifolds book, even more than Lee's Introduction to Smooth Manifolds or Guillemin & Pollack's Differential Topology, and in less than pages.

Not only does it cover the standard topics found in all such books, i.e., the rank theorem, diffeomorphisms, Cited by: The book is probably one of the most easily accessible introductions to Riemannian geometry. (M.C. Leung, MathReview) The book’s aim is to develop tools and intuition for studying the central unifying theme in Riemannian geometry, which is the notion of curvature and its relation with by: Introduction to Differentiable Manifolds and millions of other books are available for Amazon Kindle.

Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App. Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - Cited by: A second consideration stems from the self-imposed absence of point-set topol- ogy in the prerequisites.

Most books laboring under the same constraint deﬁne a manifold as a subset of a Euclidean space. This has the disadvantage of making quotient manifolds such as projective spaces difﬁcult to. Modern THE book introducing smooth manifold theory that every graduate student must read. At a level suitable for graduate student, but covers huge amount of material which might take more than a year to go by: The title of this book is not 'Differential Geometry,' but 'Introduction to Smooth Manifolds;' a title I think is very appropriate.

In this book, you will learn all the essential tools of smooth manifolds but it stops short of embarking in a bona fide study of Differential Geometry; which is the study of manifolds plus some extra structure (be it Riemannian metric, Group or Symplectic structure, etc)/5(19).

The second edition has been adapted, expanded, and aptly retitled from Lee’s earlier book, Riemannian Manifolds: An Introduction to Curvature. Numerous exercises and problem sets provide the student with opportunities to practice and develop skills; appendices contain a brief review of essential background material.

The author’s book Introduction to Smooth Manifolds is meant to act as a sequel to this book. About problems with print quality: Many people have reported receiving copies of Springer books, especially from Amazon, that suffer from extremely poor print quality (bindings that quickly break, thin paper, and low-resolution printing, for example).

This book is an introductory graduate-level textbook on the theory of smooth manifolds, for students who already have a solid acquaintance with general topology, the fundamental group, and covering spaces, as well as basic undergraduate linear algebra and real analysis. It is a natural sequel to my earlier book on topological manifolds [Lee00].

2) An Introduction to Manifolds by Loring Tu (As others have suggested!) The more abstract and general than Hubbard, but it is entirely accessible to upper-level undergraduates. This book gives differential forms based upon their general definition, which requires the development of multi-linear and tensor algebra.

Highly recommended, esp. new edition. This book is an introductory graduate-level textbook on the theory of smooth manifolds. Its goal is to familiarize students with the tools they will need in order to use manifolds in mathematical or s.

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.

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.

"The title of this pages book is self-explaining. And in fact the book could have been entitled ‘A smooth introduction to manifolds’. Also the notations are light and as smooth as possible, which is nice. The comprehensive theoretical matter is illustrated with.

This book grew out of a graduate course on 3-manifolds and is intended for a mathematically experienced audience that is new to low-dimensional topology.

It contains the essential topological ideas that are needed for the further study of manifolds, particularly in the context of differential geometry, algebraic topology, and. Manifolds: All About Mapping.

Wrapping your head around manifolds can be sometimes be hard because of all the symbols. The key thing to remember is that manifolds are all about g from the manifold to a local coordinate system in Euclidean space using a chart; mapping from one local coordinate system to another coordinate system; and later on we'll also see mapping a curve or Author: Brian Keng.

Lee, Introduction to Smooth Manifolds Solutions. Ask Question Asked 6 years ago. 18 $\begingroup$ Does anybody know where I could find the solutions to the exercises from the book Lee, Introduction to Smooth Manifolds.

I searched on the Internet and found only selected solutions but not all of them and not from the author. The book will have a key position on my shelf. Steven Krantz, Washington University in St. Louis "This is an elementary, finite dimensional version of the author's classic monograph, Introduction to Differentiable Manifolds (), which served as the standard reference for infinite dimensional manifolds.

Loring Tu's book has many computational examples and easy to medium level exercises, which are essential because of the onslaught of notation one encounters in manifold theory. 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.5/5(26).
