I often find flaws in the pace at which the book proceeds, in the sense that the author spends a lot of time on boring details differeential then goes over important material — such as crucial steps in proofs — too quickly and without providing sufficient insight. A beautiful book but presumes familiarity with manifolds.

University Press of Virginia, later editions published through at least I’d be curious to know why you think otherwise. Diffferential more about Amazon Prime.
Of course, if you only wanna go wandering, after learning Boothby’s book, you can go safely in any direction on differential geometry, or even classical mechanics i.
What is the meaning of differentiation in a differentiable manifold? Line and surface integrals Divergence and curl of vector fields. By the way, as littleO sort of boothvy, there are a number of directions other than differential geometry which you could take. My specialty was group theory. An excellent reference for the mathematics of general relativity: Although knot theory is not my specialty, I have been interested in knot theory because group theory is a useful tool in studying knots.
In Section 5 of Chapter 3, three kinds of divferential are introduced, namely immersed submanifolds, imbedded submanifolds, and regular submanifolds. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. This text was used in my first introduction to manifolds as a student. I need to bookmark differsntial.
It is also the only book that thoroughly reviews certain areas of advanced calculus that are necessary to understand the subject. Nice, short small pagesand out of print. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. A valuable glimpse on symmetric spaces ends this chapter.
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. An Introduction to Manifolds: It starts reviewing the necessary tools of analysis inverse and implicit function theorems, constant rank theorem, existence and unicity of ordinary differential equations. There are also a few items on this web site which address the same question, some of them several years ago.

Another related area to group theory is knot theory. Post as a guest Name.

I don’t mean that they should follow every detail of proofs of theorems, but I mean that they should follow what the author is trying to say. Explore the Home Gift Guide. I have just finished the book “Manfredo P. For that, I reread the diffreential geometry book by do Carmo and the book on Riemannian geometry by the same author, and I am really satisfied with the two books. He develops the theory in suitable generality to do general relativity and then devotes several chapters to FRW cosmology and black holes.
The process of reading the book in a continuous fashion, while certainly rewarding, has also led to significant disappointment. Pages with related products. We cannot compare A with B if we don’t know what B is. Please try again later.
