Differential Forms and Applications
Springer | 1994 | ISBN: 3540576185 | 118 pages | PDF | 1 MB
The book treats differential forms and uses them to study some local and global aspects of the differential geometry of surfaces. Differential forms are introduced in a simple way that will make them attractive to "users" of mathematics. A brief and elementary introduction to differentiable manifolds is given so that the main theorem, namely the Stokes' theorem, can be presented in its natural setting.
