This textbook can be used as a non-technical and geometric gateway to many aspects of differential geometry. The audience of the book is anybody with a reasonable mathematical maturity, who wants to learn some differential geometry.

Differential geometry is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with informal symbol manipulation. We use computer programs to communicate a precise understanding of the computations in differential geometry.

The authors present the results of their development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems.
