Description:
This book treats the fundamentals of differential geometry: manifolds, flows, Lie groups and their actions, invariant theory, differential forms and de Rham cohomology, bundles and connections, Riemann manifolds, isometric actions, and symplectic and Poisson geometry. The layout of the material stresses naturality and functoriality from the beginning and is as coordinate-free as possible.

by - Cambridge University Press
The book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. By the use of vector methods the presentation is both simplified and condensed, and students are encouraged to reason geometrically rather than analytically.

These notes are for a beginning graduate level course in differential geometry. It is assumed that this is the students' first course in the subject. Thus the choice of subjects and presentation has been made to facilitate a concrete picture.
