by Ruslan Sharipov - Samizdat Press
Textbook for the first course of differential geometry. It covers the theory of curves in three-dimensional Euclidean space, the vectorial analysis both in Cartesian and curvilinear coordinates, and the theory of surfaces in the space E.
by Nigel Hitchin
The historical driving force of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.
by Gabriel Lugo - University of North Carolina at Wilmington
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.
by C.E. Weatherburn - Cambridge University Press
The book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. By the use of vector methods the presentation is both simplified and condensed, and students are encouraged to reason geometrically rather than analytically.
