Description

The second edition of An Introduction to Differentiable Manifolds and Riemannian Geometry, Revised has sold over 6,000 copies since publication in 1986 and this revision will make it even more useful. This is the only book available that is approachable by "beginners" in this subject. It has become an essential introduction to the subject for mathematics students, engineers, physicists, and economists who need to learn how to apply these vital methods. It is also the only book that thoroughly reviews certain areas of advanced calculus that are necessary to understand the subject.

Key Features

  • Line and surface integrals
  • Divergence and curl of vector fields

Readership

Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics. Engineers in control theory, plus physicists and economists
