Ivan Coronel Marthens marked it as to-read Aug 05, The first ten chapters study cohomology of open sets in Euclidean space, treat smooth manifolds and their cohomology and end with integration on manifolds. Along these same lines the authors show that there is a homotopy classification of vector bundles by using the notion of a “pull-back” of vector bundles the pull-back of a vector bundle “dilutes” the bundle, i. Anand Joshi rated it it was amazing Jan 08, Published January 1st by Cambridge University Press.
If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller amdsen It will be invaluable to anyone who wishes to know about cohomology, curvature, and their applications. This book offers a self-contained exposition to this subject and to the theory of characteristic classes from the curvature point of view.
Fiber Bundles and Vector Bundles. They do however prove that a vector bundle over a compact base space has an inner product and they do this with the help of partitions of unity. The authors do motivate the definition through the consideration of ordinary vector calculus, which serves to ease the transition to the more formal theory. Vohomology frustrations begin very early on. Good question but unfortunately is left unanswered by the author.
They do not discuss why this result is so important nor give concrete examples of its utilization. The next steps involve differentiating this expression which in fact involves differentiating “under the integral”. Lim Zhanfeng marked it as to-read Jun 11, Even there though, it is not addressed in sufficient generality to cover the situation in which the author here uses it. This is a nice introduction to an area vohomology mathematics that was somehow skipped over in my mathematical education I completed the Ph.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Characteristic Classes of Complex Vector Bundles. The text includes over exercises, and gives the background necessary for the modern developments in gauge theory and madwen in four dimensions, but it also serves as an introductory course in algebraic topology.
Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone.
It will also help to go back to some of the original papers on vector and fiber bundles, even ones published in the s, to gain more of an appreciation of the concepts in the book. Mike rated it it was amazing Nov 05, Learn more about Amazon Prime.
