Cambridge University Press; 1 edition March 13, Language: This book offers a self-contained exposition to this subject and to the theory of characteristic classes from the curvature point of view. A fairly long list of exercises is given in the back of the book, and the reader should work most of these in order to be able to understand calculjs results in the book.
Get to Know Us. The foremost strategy for the calculation of the De Rham cohomology, the Mayer-Vietoris sequence is given, the treatment emphasizing the role of the Poincare lemma. No trivia or quizzes yet.
It requires no prior knowledge of the concepts of algebraic topology or cohomology. Stokes’ theorem is proved in detail. View all 3 comments. That being said, the goals of the book are extremely ambitious and what author is attempting to accomplish is not easy and I give him credit for this attempt. I recommend the book as an excellent first reading about curvature, cohomology and algebraic topology to anyone interested in these cohomologyy from students to active researchers, and especially to those who deliver lectures concerning the mentioned fields.
