Description:
This is a course on contact manifolds, which are odd dimensional manifolds with an extra structure called a contact structure. Most of our study will focus on three dimensional manifolds, though many of these notions hold for any odd dimension.

Book cover: Introduction to Differential TopologyIntroduction to Differential Topology
by - Boise State University
This is a preliminary version of introductory lecture notes for Differential Topology. We try to give a deeper account of basic ideas of differential topology than usual in introductory texts. Many examples of manifolds are worked out in detail.
