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.

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 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. Many examples of manifolds are worked out in detail.
