Gulf Professional Publishing- Mathematics – pages. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. Publish or Perish, This text was used in differentiall first introduction to manifolds as a student.

This is the only book available that is approachable by “beginners” in this subject. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Too much detail; volume 1 alone is pages. I’d be curious to know why you think otherwise.

The key is to use the partition of unity. BoothbyWilliam Munger Boothby.

The second edition of An Introduction to Differentiable Manifolds and Riemannian Geometry, Revised has sold over 6, copies since publication in and this revision will make it even more useful. A very good introduction to Lie groups and Lie algebras follows, including the correspondence between Lie subalgebras and Lie subgroups in any Lie groupdiscrete subgroups, the exponential map, the adjoint representation and homogeneous spaces.

Once you learn this book, you can go into Knapp’s ” Lie Differenntial Haar measure and the Weyl decomposition theorem for representations of compact Lie groups. In Section 5 of Chapter 3, three kinds of submanifolds are introduced, namely immersed submanifolds, imbedded submanifolds, and regular submanifolds.


Abstract Algebra, 3rd Edition. In recent years, it has turned out that knot theory is unexpectedly related to quantum field theory in physics.

Then, it dedicates much attention to motivate and construct the concept of a manifold M and the definition of the tangent space at a point of M this is much harder to do for an abstract manifold than for a submanifold of boothvy Euclidean space, and for the beginner, it demands a lot of training and time to master the different isomorphic disguises that the tangent space can adopt.

Also, the fact that these books were photocopied from the typewritten boothvy rather than typeset can make for difficult reading. Mathematics Stack Exchange works best with JavaScript enabled.

For a successful reading, it is important that a reader of the book has the ability to discern what he needs and what is inessential for differdntial now. But overall, this chapter the seventh provides differenntial rigourous and quick acquaintance with this vast part of geometry. It took me about four weeks to read almost the whole book without studying anything else.

Get to Know Us. I love the book, but it is not perfect. The pace is relatively liesurely, inessential abstraction and generality are avoided, the essential ideas used from the prerequisite subjects are reviewed, and there is an abundance of accessible and carefully developed examples to illuminate new concepts and to motivate the reader by illustrating their power.

There beometry a problem filtering reviews right now.

Although there is an gemoetry and computational relationship between them, I don’t think that that’s all. In our class, we will stick to finite-dimensional manifolds, at least in the fall semester, and probably in the spring as well. When I started to study general relativity, I felt like to study differentiable manifold theory again.

One learns better if more is left to the reader. Next, Boothby introduce us in the realm of Riemannian geometry: Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Noel Hicks, Notes on Differential Geometry. To understand the difference between imbedded and regular submanifolds, you need to know some basic topology.
