Introduction to Differential Topology
by

Publisher: Boise State University
Number of pages: 110

Description:
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.
