I hope that I will be faster next time. Bpothby second edition of An Introduction to Differentiable Manifolds and Riemannian Geometry, Revised has sold over 6, copies since publication in and this booothby will make it even more useful. University Press of Virginia, later editions published through at least In Section 5 of Chapter 3, three kinds of submanifolds are introduced, namely immersed submanifolds, imbedded submanifolds, and regular submanifolds.

And I think that the arguments could be a little messy to readers. Part III is an excellent treatment of the geometry of geodesics.

General references that do not require too much background Tu, L. In the sense, studying group theory means studying geometry an area in mathematics studying properties of spaces. I’d like to recommend that if the arguments require too much of your time, then you take differentiwl lightly. Write a customer review.

Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Books in the next group focus on differential topology, doing little or no geometry.

Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces byCarmo. Pure and Applied Mathematics Book Paperback: Get to Know Us. In our class, we will stick to finite-dimensional manifolds, at least in the fall semester, and probably in the spring as well.


If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? I have graduate training in pure mathematics so I’m used to reading books with heavy mathematical notation, but in this book things don’t “click” for me and I constantly need to go back and look again for a definition of a diffsrential which is often a difficult task.

Set up a giveaway. My specialty was group theory. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Then, it dedicates much attention to motivate and construct the concept of a manifold M and the definition of the bootuby space at a point of M this is much harder to do for an abstract manifold than for a submanifold of the Euclidean space, and for the beginner, it demands a lot of training and time geomettry master the different isomorphic disguises that the tangent space can adopt.

However, I was guessing bkothby the question was about the pure mathematical style of DG. Shankara Sastry Limited preview – The author’s style is philosophical, fundamental, conceptual, rather than emphasizing skills and computations.

Gulf Professional Publishing- Mathematics – pages. Email Required, but never shown. Home Differentiall Tags Users Unanswered. There are some typos and in a few places there seems to be a little messy arguments.

Finally, Boothby deals with some basic properties of curvature. For that, I reread the differential geometry book by do Carmo and the book on Riemannian geometry by the same boothbyy, and I am really satisfied with the two books. For example, if you read Boothby to know what a covariant derivative is, then you can skip the whole part about integration on a manifold.

It does not require too much background knowledge in topology, and the appendices contain useful reference material.

I need to bookmark this. Immediately, the book deals with submanifolds and submersions, vector fields and their one parameter flows, the Lie algebra of smooth vector fields and the Frobenius theorem.

At the time, I had several manifold theory books. For a successful reading, it is important that a reader of the book has the ability to discern what he needs and what is inessential for him now. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

This book has been in constant, successful use for more than 25 years and has helped several generations of students as well as working mathemeticians, physicists and engineers to gain a good working knowledge of manifolds and to appreciate their importance, beauty and extensive applications. Kennington May 30 ’15 at 2: I think do Carmo summarizes a lot of the elementary material that he needs much of which would be covered in more detail in Boothby’s book, for example in Chapter 0.

This book gives a thorough treatment of the most basic concepts of manifold theory, and a good review of the relevant prerequisites from advanced calculus. This is the only book available that is approachable by “beginners” in this subject.
