Description:
These notes will be helpful to undergraduate and postgraduate students in theoretical physics and in applied mathematics. Modern terminology in differential geometry has been discussed in the book with the motivation of geometrical or pictorial way of thinking. The book shows the wide applicability of differential geometry to relativity theory.
