Notes on Differential Geometry
by

Publisher: Van Nostrand
ISBN/ASIN: B0000CMMMM
Number of pages: 183

Description:
A great 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. It thus makes a great reference book for anyone working in any of these fields.
