Differential Geometry Of Three Dimensions
by C.E. Weatherburn
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1955
Number of pages: 281
The more elementary parts of the subject are discussed in Chapters I-XI. The remainder of the book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. By the use of vector methods the presentation of the subject is both simplified and condensed, and students are encouraged to reason geometrically rather than analytically.

Smooth manifolds and scalar fields, tangent vectors, contravariant and covariant vector fields, tensor fields, Riemannian manifolds, locally Minkowskian manifolds, covariant differentiation, the Riemann curvature tensor, premises of general relativity.
by Nigel Hitchin
The historical driving force of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.

These notes are for a beginning graduate level course in differential geometry. It is assumed that this is the students' first course in the subject. Thus the choice of subjects and presentation has been made to facilitate a concrete picture.
