As Bakhoda says, Riemannian Manifolds will cover metrics, connections, etc, but there is also his book Introduction to Smooth Manifolds which is, in my opinion, one of the greatest math texts ever written alongside Aluffi’s Algebra: It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Sepideh Bakhoda 3, 1 19 This book will supply a graduate student in mathematics or theoretical physics with the fundamentals of these objects. I am considering reading this book ‘ Differential Geometry’ by Clifford Henry Taubes but I am not sure whether it is a good book. Covariant derivatives, connections and curvature Taaubes Dynamics Anatoly I. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

Metrics on vector bundles 8. Bundles, connections, metrics and curvature are the ‘lingua franca’ of modern differential geometry and theoretical physics. This is the Ender’s Game of math books: Account Options Sign in. Matrices and Lie groups 3. I would certainly second the suggestion of taking a look at any book by John Lee.

Differential Geometry uses many of the classical examples from, and applications of, the subjects it covers, in particular those where closed form expressions are available, to bring abstract ideas to life.

Differential Geometry uses many of the classical examples from, and applications of, the subjects it differrntial, in particular those where closed form expressions are available, to bring abstract ideas to life.

Many of the tools used in differential topology are introduced and the basic results about differentiable manifolds, smooth maps, differential forms, vector fields, Lie groups, and Grassmanians are all presented here. Ebook This title is available as an ebook.

Other material covered includes the basic theorems about geodesics and Jacobi fields, the classification clitford for flat connections, the definition of characteristic classes, and also an introduction to complex and Kahler geometry.

I have studied point set topology and basic manifold theory tangent spaces,vector fields, differential forms,integration, and basic de Rham Theory but have no knowledge of Algebraic Topology. Differential Geometry uses many of the classical examples from, and applications of, the subjects it covers, in particular those where closed form expressions are available, to bring abstract ideas to life.

The Mathematical World of Charles L. All of the introductory material is presented in full and this is the only such source with the classical examples presented in detail. He amplifies everything with generous allusions to other sources so that the reader is easily able to follow up on certain themes with considerable ease.
