In this course I will present an overview of differential geometry, also known as the theory of manifolds, (sometimes loosely known as non-Euclidean geometry or Riemannian
geometry, but that is actually a somewhat more specialized topic).
Be aware that these are notes, not a full textbook, and I currently make no pretense or claim of completeness...
Be aware that this course is designed as a lead-in to a course on general relativity and cosmology - this will unaviodably flavour the topics I choose to emphasise. |
