**A Geometric Approach to Differential Forms**

by David Bachman

**Publisher**: arXiv 2003**ISBN/ASIN**: 0817644997**Number of pages**: 106

**Description**:

This is a draft of a textbook on differential forms. The primary target audience is sophomore level undergraduates enrolled in what would traditionally be a course in vector calculus. Later chapters will be of interest to advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students. Applications include brief introductions to Maxwell's equations, foliations and contact structures, and DeRham cohomology.
