**Functional Differential Geometry**

by Gerald Jay Sussman, Jack Wisdom

**Publisher**: MIT 2005**Number of pages**: 77

**Description**:

Differential geometry is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with unclear and informal symbol manipulation. To address this problem we use computer programs to communicate a precise understanding of the computations in differential geometry.
