by John Edward Campbell - Clarendon Press
Contents: Tensor theory; The ground form when n=2; Geodesics in two-way space; Two-way space as a locus in Euclidean space; Deformation of a surface and congruences; Curves in Euclidean space and on a surface; The ruled surface; Minimal surface; etc.
by C.E. Weatherburn - Cambridge University Press
The book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. By the use of vector methods the presentation is both simplified and condensed, and students are encouraged to reason geometrically rather than analytically.
by Matt Visser - Victoria University of Wellington
In this text the author presents an overview of differential geometry. Topics covered: Topological Manifolds and differentiable structure; Tangent and cotangent spaces; Fibre bundles; Geodesics and connexions; Riemann curvature; etc.
by Noel J. Hicks - Van Nostrand
A concise introduction to differential geometry. The ten chapters of Hicks' book contain most of the mathematics that has become the standard background for not only differential geometry, but also much of modern theoretical physics and cosmology.
