Dispatched from the UK in 1 business day When will my order arrive? Tu’s book is definitely a great book to read for someone who infroduction know the first thing about manifolds. I had a look at the John Lee book and it starts off with topological manifolds which is different from Tu’s book that starts off with differentiable functions.
I was wondering if someone can recommend to me some introductory texts on manifolds, suitable for those that have some background on analysis and several variable calculus.

Contrary to what you might suspect from the title, Isham’s text is very mathematical; basically manirolds is no physics at all.

A little bit more advanced and dealing extensively with differential geometry of manifolds is the book by Jeffrey Lee – “Manifolds and Differential Geometry” do not confuse it with the other books by John M. Kindle Cloud Reader Read instantly in your browser.

I want to ask what you think about the book of S. There is a first volume on “topological manifolds” and a second volume on “smooth manifolds” and even a third one on “Riemannian geometry”.

The Long Exact Sequence in Cohomology. An manifo,ds others have pointed out, it is a good book for Bott and Tu’s book on differential forms which is horrible in terms of introducing basic concepts. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
A very good and underrated book-and available very cheap from Dover! Its table of contents is amazing in scope dealing with some advanced topics most other introductory books avoid like classical integral geometry, characteristic classes and pseudodifferential operators. If introducttion had done that,the book would probably have been a huge success as a necessary supplement to some of the great exercise-less lecture notes on the subject-such as S.

In this streamlined introduction to the subject, the theory of manifolds is presented with the aim of helping the reader achieve a rapid mastery of the essential topics.
