**Differentiable Manifolds**

by Nigel Hitchin

2003

**Description**:

This is an introductory course on differentiable manifolds. One of the historical driving forces of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. A large part of the text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.
