Providing a succinct yet comprehensive treatment of the essentials of modern differential geometry and topology, this book's clear prose and informal style make it accessible to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics and the physical sciences. The text covers the basics of multilinear algebra, differentiation and integration on manifolds, Lie groups and Lie algebras, homotopy and de Rham cohomology, homology, vector bundles, Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry, and degree theory. It also features over 250 detailed exercises, and a variety of applications revealing fundamental connections to classical mechanics, electromagnetism (including circuit theory), general relativity and gauge theory. Solutions to the problems are available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/9781107042193.Read more
- Demonstrates how to use tensors and forms and how to apply them to problems in mathematics and physics
- Bridges the gap between pure mathematics and applied science by explaining in detail the relationship between abstract and concrete approaches (theory and computations)
- Requires minimal prerequisites and explains advanced concepts not usually taught at this level, providing an easier route to these subjects for mathematicians and scientists who are not experts in the field

Very clear and succinct, shows the relationship between all representations of algebra, as well as a paced evolution of the concepts. Havent got far, yet, but Im finally getting tensors.
