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.

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 is an introductory text on the more topological aspects of contact geometry. After discussing some of the fundamental results of contact topology, I move on to a detailed exposition of the original proof of the Lutz-Martinet theorem.

This is a course on contact manifolds, which are odd dimensional manifolds with an extra structure called a contact structure. Most of our study will focus on three dimensional manifolds, though many of these notions hold for any odd dimension.
