by Edward Nelson - Princeton Univ Pr
The lecture notes for the first part of a one-term course on differential geometry given at Princeton in the spring of 1967. They are an expository account of the formal algebraic aspects of tensor analysis using both modern and classical notations.
by Balazs Csikos - Eötvös Loránd University
Contents: Basic Structures on Rn, Length of Curves; Curvatures of a Curve; Plane Curves; 3D Curves; Hypersurfaces; Surfaces in 3-dimensional space; Fundamental equations of hypersurface theory; Topological and Differentiable Manifolds; etc.
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.

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.
