**Lectures on Differential Geometry**

by John Douglas Moore

**Publisher**: University of California 2009**Number of pages**: 263

**Description**:

This course will describe the foundations of Riemannian geometry, including geodesics and curvature, as well as connections in vector bundles, and then go on to discuss the relationships between curvature and topology. Topology will presented in two dual contrasting forms, de Rham cohomology and Morse homology.
