The choice of topics certainly gives the reader a good basis for further self study. The presentation is smooth, the choice of topics optimal, and the book can be profitably used for self teaching. The de Rharn Cohomology Theorem.
Differentiable Manifolds by Lawrence Conlon
Be the first to ddifferentiable a question about Differentiable Manifolds. Selected pages Title Page. This second edition contains a significant amount of new material, which, in addition to classroom use, will make it a useful reference text. Within this area, the book is unusually comprehensive Nitin CR added it Dec 11, Selected pages Page 4.
Topics that can be omitted safely in a first course are clearly marked, making this edition lawrene to use for such a course, as well as for private study by non-specialists wishing to survey the field. The subject matter is differential topology and geometry, that is, the study of curves, surfaces and manifolds where the assumption of differentiability adds the tools of differentiable and integral calculus to those of topology.
