Differential topology

By: Guillemin, Victor.
Contributor(s): Pollack, Alan [Co-author].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Hyderabad Universities press 2017Description: xviii, 221 p.ISBN: 9781470437275.Subject(s): Differential topology | Oriented intersection theory | Integration on manifoldsDDC classification: 514.72 Summary: Differential Topology provides an elementary and intuitive introduction to the study of smooth manifolds. In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack's book has become a standard text on the subject. It is a jewel of mathematical exposition, judiciously picking exactly the right mixture of detail and generality to display the richness within. The text is mostly self-contained, requiring only undergraduate analysis and linear algebra. By relying on a unifying idea-transversality-the authors are able to avoid the use of big machinery or ad hoc techniques to establish the main.
