Post as a guest Name. I own the book but haven’t looked at it for some time. Username Password Forgot your username or password? An exercise section in Chapter 4 leads the student through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance.

But your amazon link doesn’t work. The existence of such a section is equivalent to splitting the vector bundle into a trivial line bundle and a vector bundle of lower rank.

One then finds another neighborhood Z of differengial such that functions in the intersection of Y and Z are forced to be embeddings.

The book has a wealth of exercises of various types. Then let me give a quick description guilemin differences on the manifold setting. There are in fact lots of words written about PDEs on manifolds If You’re a Student Additional order info.

I stated the problem of understanding which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing sections. I use Gray’s code frequently; I was a fan. Email Required, dkfferential never shown.

Of course, I also agree that Guillemin and Pollack, Hirsch, and Milnor are great supplements, and will probably emphasize some of the topological aspects that Lee doesn’t go into.


Differential Topology

Suggestions about important theorems and concepts to learn, and book references, will be most helpful. I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold and the intersection polack of two submanifolds. Email, fax, or send via postal mail to: Teaching myself differential topology and differential geometry Ask Question.

About 50 of these books are 20th or 21st century books which would be useful as introductions to differential geometry. It is a jewel of mathematical exposition, judiciously picking exactly the right mixture of detail and generality to display the richness within.

It is the topology whose basis is given by allowing for infinite intersections of memebers of the subbasis which defines the weak topology, as long as the corresponding collection of charts on M is locally finite.

And of course, the same goes for his proofs. What are the most important and basic theorems here? If you can get a copy of this title for a cheap price the link above sends you to Amazon marketplace and there are cheap “like new” copies I think it is worth it. You can do it by looking at coordinate patches, but the pseudo differential operators you define will depend on the coordinate chart you chose though usually the principal part is invariant under coordinate change.

Joseph, have you had a chance to look at Frankel’s book “Geometry of Physics”? I want to know about parallel transport and holonomy. But then you are entering the world of abstract algebra.

I’ve always viewed Ehresmann connections as the fundamental notion of connection. Complete and sign the license agreement. To subscribe to the current year of Memoirs of the AMSplease download this required license agreement.

For differential geometry, I’d go on to his Riemannian Manifolds and then follow up with do Carmo’s Riemannian Geometry. The first book is pragmatically written and guides the reader to a lot of interesting stuff, like Hodge’s theorem, Morse homology and harmonic maps.

The course provides an ans to differential topology. As an application of the jet version, I deduced that the set of Morse functions on a smooth dirferential forms an open and dense subset with respect to the strong topology. As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial.


If you are interested in learning Algebraic Geometry I recommend the books of my Amazon list. In a slightly different direction, you can also look at Eli Stein’s “Topics in harmonic analysis related to the Littlewood Paley theory”. Unfortunately I cannot attend a course right now.

For differential geometry it’s much more of a mixed bag as it really depends on where you want to go. Sign up using Facebook. In guillfmin end, gukllemin must not forget that the old masters were much more visual an intuitive than the modern abstract approaches to geometry. If you are a Mathematica anc, I think this is a wonderful avenue for self-study, for you can see and manipulate all the central constructions yourself.

Email Required, but never shown. Towards this purpose I want to know what are the most important differnetial theorems in differential geometry and differential topology.

For PDEs, the information in most advanced texts are perfectly differenntial to the case of manifolds at least in regard to scalar functions; sections of vector bundles can get a bit trickier. To start Algebraic Topology these two are of great help: I proved homotopy invariance of pull backs. The basic idea is to control the values of a function as well as its derivatives over a compact subset. This book is probably way too easy for you, but I learned differential geometry from Stoker and I really love this book even though most people seem to not know about it.

By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained.
