Differential geometry is the study of curvature and calculus of curves and surfaces. Because of an historical accident, the Geometric Algebra devised by William Kingdom Clifford (–) has been overlooked in favor of the more complicated and less powerful formalism of differential forms and tangent vectors to deal with differential geometry.3/5(2). What are the books in Differential Geometry with a good collection of problems? At present I am having John M. Lee's Riemannian Manifolds, Kobayashi & Nomizu's Foundations of Differential Geometry.I particularly like Dieudonne's books in Analysis as well as books like Alexander Kirillov's Functional be precise, the books that have a huge number of exercises.

ential geometry. It is based on the lectures given by the author at E otv os Lorand University and at Budapest Semesters in Mathematics. In the rst chapter, some preliminary de nitions and facts are collected, that will be used later. The classical roots of modern di erential geometry are presented in the next two chapters. Differential Geometry: A First Course is an introduction to the classical theory of space curves and surfaces offered at the Graduate and Post- Graduate courses in Mathematics. Based on Serret-Frenet formulae, the theory of space curves is developed and concluded with a detailed discussion on fundamental existence theorem/5(2). Here are my favorite ones: Calculus on Manifolds, Michael Spivak, - Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics, V.I. Arnold, - Gauge Fields, Knots, and Gravity, John C. Baez. I can honestly say I didn't really understand Calculus until I read. With problems and solutions. I An introductory textbook on the differential geometry of curves and surfaces in 3-dimensional Euclidean space, presented in its simplest, most essential form, but with many explanatory details, figures, and examples, and in a manner that conveys the theoretical and practical importance of the different concepts /5().
After making the above comments about the Kreyszig book yesterday, I noticed that the Willmore book " An Introduction to Differential Geometry" is very much more modern than the Kreyszig book. For example, the Willmore book presents compactness issues regarding geodesics, various global topology results, general affine connections /5(79). Cartan geometries were the first examples of connections on a principal bundle. They seem to be almost unknown these days, in spite of the great beauty and conceptual power they confer on geometry. The aim of the present book is to fill the gap in the literature on differential geometry by the missing notion of Cartan connections. Although the author had in mind a book accessible to graduate. The structure of the volume corresponds to A Course of Differential Geometry and Topology (Moscow University Press ) by Prof. A. T. Fomenko and Prof. A. S. Mishchenko Some problems however, touch upon topics outside the course lectures. The corresponding sections are provided with all necessary theoretical foundations. Elementary Topics in Differential Geometry book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. In the past decade there has been a significant 4/5(4).
