**Notes on Differential Geometry**

by Noel J. Hicks

**Publisher**: Van Nostrand 1965**ISBN/ASIN**: B0000CMMMM**Number of pages**: 183

**Description**:

A great 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. It thus makes a great reference book for anyone working in any of these fields.
