**Topics in Differential Geometry**

by Peter W. Michor

**Publisher**: American Mathematical Society 2008**ISBN/ASIN**: 0821820036**ISBN-13**: 9780821820032**Number of pages**: 429

**Description**:

This book treats the fundamentals of differential geometry: manifolds, flows, Lie groups and their actions, invariant theory, differential forms and de Rham cohomology, bundles and connections, Riemann manifolds, isometric actions, and symplectic and Poisson geometry. The layout of the material stresses naturality and functoriality from the beginning and is as coordinate-free as possible.
