Book cover: Differential Geometry Of Three DimensionsDifferential Geometry Of Three Dimensions
by - 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.

Book cover: Elementary Differential GeometryElementary Differential Geometry
by - UAB ,
These notes are for a beginning graduate level course in differential geometry. It is assumed that this is the students' first course in the subject. Thus the choice of subjects and presentation has been made to facilitate a concrete picture.

Book cover: Notes on Differential GeometryNotes on Differential Geometry
by - 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.

Book cover: Differential Geometry in PhysicsDifferential Geometry in Physics
by - University of North Carolina at Wilmington ,
These notes were developed as a supplement to a course on Differential Geometry at the advanced undergraduate level, which the author has taught. This texts has an early introduction to differential forms and their applications to Physics.

Book cover: Differentiable ManifoldsDifferentiable Manifolds
by ,
The historical driving force of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.

Book cover: Tensor AnalysisTensor Analysis
by - Princeton Univ Pr ,
The lecture notes for the first part of a one-term course on differential geometry given at Princeton in the spring of 1967. They are an expository account of the formal algebraic aspects of tensor analysis using both modern and classical notations.
