**Differential Geometry: A Geometric Introduction**

by

**David W. Henderson**-

**Project Euclid**,

**2013**

This is the only book that introduces differential geometry through a combination of an intuitive geometric foundation, a rigorous connection with the standard formalisms, computer exercises with Maple, and a problems-based approach.

**Differential Geometry Of Three Dimensions**

by

**C.E. Weatherburn**-

**Cambridge University Press**,

**1955**

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.

**Elementary Differential Geometry**

by

**Gilbert Weinstein**-

**UAB**,

**2009**

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.

**Notes on Differential Geometry**

by

**Noel J. Hicks**-

**Differentiable Manifolds**

by

**Nigel Hitchin**,

**2003**

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.
