Add all three to Cart Add all three to List. The strength of the subject is that the spaces in question have a structure that allow many problems to be locally reduced to linear algebra questions. The book has a wealth of exercises of various guil,emin. The explanations are often difficult to follow and cluttered, requiring guilleimn to dedicate a large amount of time to draw diagrams and try and follow the train of thought of the author.

So I stuck to this book. Any help would be appreciated.

I agree with the reviewer who is not a “higher mathematician”. The book is a great example of a horrible math text.

Differential Topology provides an elementary and intuitive introduction to the study of smooth manifolds. Please try again later. Problems at the end of chapters will omit important details like what regularity one should assume for a function, if a manifold is compact, and other such things.

Aug 12 ’15 at Easily comprehensible to someone who has had earlier courses in analysis, topology, and differential geometry, and even the latter is only helpful and not strictly required. A brief aside to justify the above: Poloack more about Amazon Prime.
