The eminently descriptive back cover description of the contents of Jeffrey M. I would class the book under review as a mean between these two extremes in the sense that the indicated sequence would make for a nice two or three year course of studies leading to some rather avant garde mathematics at the research level. However, the mean does not uniquely determine its extremes, so other sources are certainly available, e.
Copies of the classnotes are on the internet in PDF format as given below. The "Proofs of Theorems" files were prepared in Beamer and they contain proofs of the results from the class notes. These notes and supplements have not been classroom tested and so may have some typographical errors. Chapter 0. Background Material. Chapter 1. Differentiable Manifolds.

I was studying some hyperbolic geometry previously and realised that I needed to understand things in a more general setting in terms of a "manifold" which I don't yet know of. I was wondering if someone can recommend to me some introductory texts on manifolds, suitable for those that have some background on analysis and several variable calculus. Narasimhan, but it is too advanced. Another interesting answers to a similar question are in Teaching myself differential topology and differential geometry You may find interesting other books which are recommended there.
Part of the Geometry and Computing book series GC, volume This textbook offers an introduction to differential geometry designed for readers interested in modern geometry processing. Working from basic undergraduate prerequisites, the authors develop manifold theory and Lie groups from scratch; fundamental topics in Riemannian geometry follow, culminating in the theory that underpins manifold optimization techniques. Students and professionals working in computer vision, robotics, and machine learning will appreciate this pathway into the mathematical concepts behind many modern applications. Starting with the matrix exponential, the text begins with an introduction to Lie groups and group actions. Manifolds, tangent spaces, and cotangent spaces follow; a chapter on the construction of manifolds from gluing data is particularly relevant to the reconstruction of surfaces from 3D meshes. Vector fields and basic point-set topology bridge into the second part of the book, which focuses on Riemannian geometry.
Differential Geometry is the study of smooth manifolds. Manifolds are multi-dimensional spaces that locally on a small scale look like Euclidean n -dimensional space R n , but globally on a large scale may have an interesting shape topology. For example, the surface of a football sphere and the surface of a donut torus are 2-dimensional manifolds. Often one studies manifolds with a geometric structure, such a Riemannian metric, which tells you the lengths of curves on a manifold. Manifolds are the language in which much of theoretical physics and physical applied mathematics is written.
In mathematics , synthetic differential geometry is a formalization of the theory of differential geometry in the language of topos theory. There are several insights that allow for such a reformulation. The first is that most of the analytic data for describing the class of smooth manifolds can be encoded into certain fibre bundles on manifolds: namely bundles of jets see also jet bundle. The second insight is that the operation of assigning a bundle of jets to a smooth manifold is functorial in nature. The third insight is that over a certain category , these are representable functors. Furthermore, their representatives are related to the algebras of dual numbers , so that smooth infinitesimal analysis may be used. Synthetic differential geometry can serve as a platform for formulating certain otherwise obscure or confusing notions from differential geometry.
Here is the version of the history of geometry from Wikipedia. Textbook updated periodically : Calculus III. There will be ten homework assignments, assigned in the lecture classes, and collected in the tutorial classes.

Я хотел уйти с сознанием, что добился своей цели. - Но вы добились своей цели, - словно со стороны услышала Сьюзан собственный голос, - Вы создали ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Казалось, Стратмор ее не слышал. - В последние несколько лет наша работа здесь, в агентстве, становилась все более трудной. Мы столкнулись с врагами, которые, как мне казалось, никогда не посмеют бросить нам вызов.
