Course of Differential Geometry
by Ruslan Sharipov
Publisher: Samizdat Press 2004
Number of pages: 132
This book is a textbook for the basic course of differential geometry. It is recommended as an introductory material for this subject. The book is devoted to the firs acquaintance with the differential geometry. Therefore it begins with the theory of curves in three-dimensional Euclidean space E. Then the vectorial analysis in E is stated both in Cartesian and curvilinear coordinates, afterward the theory of surfaces in the space E is considered.

by Noel J. Hicks - Van Nostrand
A concise introduction to differential geometry. The ten chapters of Hicks' book contain most of the mathematics that has become the standard background for not only differential geometry, but also much of modern theoretical physics and cosmology.
by David W. Henderson - Project Euclid
This is the only book that introduces differential geometry through a combination of an intuitive geometric foundation, a rigorous connection with the standard formalisms, computer exercises with Maple, and a problems-based approach.

These notes were developed as a supplement to a course on Differential Geometry at the advanced undergraduate level, which the author has taught. This texts has an early introduction to differential forms and their applications to Physics.
