Introduction to Differential Topology
by Uwe Kaiser
Publisher: Boise State University 2006
Number of pages: 110
This is a preliminary version of introductory lecture notes for Differential Topology. We try to give a deeper account of basic ideas of differential topology than usual in introductory texts. Also many more examples of manifolds like matrix groups and Grassmannians are worked out in detail.

Tight and taut submanifolds form an important class of manifolds with special curvature properties, one that has been studied intensively by differential geometers since the 1950's. This book contains six articles by leading experts in the field.

An overview of symplectic geometry – the geometry of symplectic manifolds. From a language of classical mechanics, symplectic geometry became a central branch of differential geometry and topology. This survey gives a partial flavor on this field.

This book provides full details of a complete proof of the Poincare Conjecture following Grigory Perelman's preprints. The book is suitable for all mathematicians from advanced graduate students to specialists in geometry and topology.

This book is devoted to the theory of manifolds of differentiable mappings and contains result which can be proved without the help of a hard implicit function theorem of nuclear function spaces. All the necessary background is developed in detail.
