Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo-"earth", -metron "measurement") is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer.. Geometry arose independently in a number of early cultures as a practical way for dealing with lengths. For beginning geometry there are two truly wonderful books, Barrett O'neill's Elementary Differential Geometry and Singer and Thorpe's Lecture Notes on Elementary Topology and Geometry. Singer and Thorpe are well known mathematicians and wrote this book for undergraduates to introduce them to geometry from the modern view point.
Concepts drawn from topology and geometry have become essential to the understanding of several phenomena in the area. The main purpose of this book is to provide a brief, self-contained introduction to some mathematical ideas and methods from differential geometry and topology, and to show a few applications in condensed matter. Another book worthy of being mentioned is Frank Warner's Foundations of Differentiable Manifolds and Lie Groups. For the more "differential topology" side of smooth manifolds, I recommend having a look at Brocker & Janich, Introduction to Differential Topology. There's also the much more advanced Hirsch, Differential Topology.
Can anyone suggest any basic undergraduate differential geometry texts on the same level as Manfredo do Carmo's Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces other than that particular one? (I know a similar question was asked earlier, but most of the responses were geared towards Riemannian geometry, or some other text which defined the concept of "smooth manifold" very early on. The UCL Geometry and Topology Group is part of the UCL Mathematics Department. We have eight faculty members, five postdocs and 14 PhD students. Our research interests include differential geometry and geometric analysis, symplectic geometry, gauge theory, low .

ADDITION: I have compiled what I think is a definitive collection of listmanias at Amazon for a best selection of books an references, mostly in increasing order of difficulty, in almost any branch of geometry and topology.
In particular the books I recommend below for differential topology and differential geometry; I hope to fill in commentaries for each title as I have the time in the future. Schaum's Outline of Differential Geometry (Schaum's) 12 of over 2, Differential topology and geometry book for Books: Science & Math: Mathematics: Geometry & Topology: Differential Geometry.
Aimed at graduate students and requiring only linear algebra and differential and integral calculus, this book presents, in a concise and direct manner, the appropriate mathematical formalism and fundamentals of differential topology and differential geometry together with essential applications in many branches of physics.
Online shopping for Books from a great selection of Topology, Algebraic Geometry, Analytic Geometry, Differential Geometry, Non-Euclidean Geometries & more at everyday low prices. This book is Russian, and the style of Russian textbooks is very physical and interesting for physics students, in my opinion.
Furthermore, the book does not focus on either differential geometry or topology, but covers both (briefly), which is also good for physics students. Naber - Topology, Geometry and Gauge Fields (two volumes). Differential Geometry Lecture Notes. This book covers the following topics: Smooth Manifolds, Plain curves, Submanifolds, Differentiable maps, immersions, submersions and embeddings, Basic results from Differential Topology, Tangent spaces and tensor.
KEY WORDS: Curve, Frenet frame, curvature, torsion, hypersurface, funda-mental forms, principal curvature, Gaussian curvature, Minkowski curvature, manifold, tensor eld, connection, geodesic curve SUMMARY: The aim of this textbook is to give an introduction to di er-ential geometry.
It is based on the lectures given by the author at E otv os. A manifold is a topological space for which every point has a neighborhood which is homeomorphic to a real topological vector space. A ringed space is a topological space which has for each open set, a ring, which behaves like a ring of functions.

Differential geometry is a mathematical discipline that uses the techniques of differential calculus, integral calculus, linear algebra and multilinear algebra to study problems in theory of plane and space curves and surfaces in the three-dimensional Euclidean space formed the basis for development of differential geometry during the 18th century and the 19th century.
Differential geometry is also useful in topology, several complex variables, algebraic geometry, complex manifolds, and dynamical systems, among other fields.
The field has even found applications to group theory as in Gromov's work and to probability theory as in Diaconis's work. This book provides an introduction to topology, differential topology, and differential geometry. It is based on manuscripts refined through use in a variety of lecture courses.
Available Formats: Softcover eBook. Textbook Proofs from THE BOOK. Aigner, M., Ziegler, G. In the first part of this chapter, we give a brief introduction to Smooth Manifolds and Differential Forms following mainly the text of Arnold (“Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics”).
In the second part, we start with the definitions of Riemannian metrics, connections and curvatures on open sets of Euclidean spaces, and then give a Author: Kingshook Biswas, Soma Maity. Accessible, concise, and self-contained, this book offers an outstanding introduction to three related subjects: differential geometry, differential topology, and dynamical systems.
Topics of special interest addressed in the book include Brouwer's fixed point theorem, Morse Theory, and the geodesic : Exploring the full scope of differential topology, this comprehensive account of geometric techniques for studying the topology of smooth manifolds offers a wide perspective on the field.
Building up from first principles, concepts of manifolds are introduced, supplemented by thorough appendices giving background on topology and homotopy : C.

About the book. The present course deals with the fundamentals of differential geometry and topology whose present state is the culmination of contributions of generations of mathematicians. Chapter 1 Introduction Some history In the words of S.S.

The ﬁrst book is really about diﬀerential topology. We will use it for some of the topics such as the Frobenius Size: 28KB.Differential Topology and Geometry Proceedings of the Colloquium Held at Dijon, 17–22 June, Introduction to Topology and Geometry, Second Edition is an excellent introductory text for topology and geometry courses at the upper-undergraduate level.
In addition, the book serves as an ideal reference for professionals interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the topic.
