A solid introduction to the methods of differential geometry and tensor calculus, this volume is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics, physics, and engineering. Rather than a comprehensive account, it offers an introduction to the essential ideas and methods of differential geometry.

Part 1 begins by employing vector methods to explore the classical theory of curves and surfaces. An introduction to the differential geometry of surfaces in the large provides students with ideas and techniques involved in global research. Part 2 introduces the concept of a tensor, first in algebra, then in calculus. It covers the basic theory of the absolute calculus and the fundamentals of Riemannian geometry. Worked examples and exercises appear throughout the text.

**Book Description **Oxford University Press, 1997. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Introduction to Differential Geometry has been planned for use, in an Honours Mathematics Course or as an introduction to the subject at postgraduate level. This textbook gives all that is likely to be required at the undergraduate level and most of the material has in fact been taught to undergraduate. The book also gives a useful introduction to the methods of differential geometry or to tensor calculus for research students (e.g. in physics or engineering) who may wish to apply them.Part I is devoted to the classical theory of curves and surfaces, vector methods being used throughout. The last chapter dealing with global differential geometry of surface contains material which does not appear in any standard English text.Part II introduces the idea of a tensor, first in algebra and then in calculus. It gives the basic theory of absolute calculus and fundamentals of Riemannian geometry. The final chapter gives a brief account of the application of tensor methods to yield results previously obtained in Part I and some new results in addition. Printed Pages: 0.
