By Theodore Frankel
This publication offers a operating wisdom of these components of external differential types, differential geometry, algebraic and differential topology, Lie teams, vector bundles, and Chern kinds which are necessary for a deeper knowing of either classical and smooth physics and engineering. it really is perfect for graduate and complex undergraduate scholars of physics, engineering or arithmetic as a path textual content or for self learn.
a prime addition brought during this 3rd version is the inclusion of an outline, which might be learn sooner than beginning the textual content. This seems to be at first of the textual content, earlier than bankruptcy 1. the various geometric recommendations built within the textual content are previewed the following and those are illustrated by way of their purposes to a unmarried prolonged challenge in engineering, specifically the examine of the Cauchy stresses created via a small twist of an elastic cylindrical rod approximately its axis.
