By Theodore Frankel

This ebook presents a operating wisdom of these components of external differential kinds, differential geometry, algebraic and differential topology, Lie teams, vector bundles, and Chern varieties which are useful for a deeper figuring out of either classical and smooth physics and engineering. it truly is excellent for graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars of physics, engineering or arithmetic as a direction textual content or for self learn.

a first-rate addition brought during this 3rd variation is the inclusion of an summary, that are learn sooner than beginning the textual content. This seems to be at the start of the textual content, earlier than bankruptcy 1. some of the geometric recommendations built within the textual content are previewed the following and those are illustrated via their purposes to a unmarried prolonged challenge in engineering, specifically the learn of the Cauchy stresses created by way of a small twist of an elastic cylindrical rod approximately its axis.
