By Bernard F. Schutz

In recent times the tools of recent differential geometry became of substantial value in theoretical physics and feature discovered program in relativity and cosmology, high-energy physics and box conception, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and mechanics. This textbook offers an creation to those equipment - particularly Lie derivatives, Lie teams and differential varieties - and covers their broad functions to theoretical physics. The reader is thought to have a few familiarity with complicated calculus, linear algebra and a bit straightforward operator concept. The complex physics undergraduate may still accordingly locate the presentation really obtainable. This account will turn out important for people with backgrounds in physics and utilized arithmetic who hope an advent to the topic. Having studied the ebook, the reader could be in a position to understand study papers that use this arithmetic and persist with extra complicated pure-mathematical expositions.
