DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY AND LIE GROUPSFOR PHYSICISTS
Differential geometry plays an increasingly important role in modern theoretical physicsandappliedmathematics.Thistextbookgivesanintroductiontogeometricaltopicsusefulintheoreticalphysicsandappliedmathematics,includingmanifolds,tensorfields,differentialforms, connections, symplectic geometry, actions of Lie groups, bundles and spinors.Havingwrittenitinaninformalstyle,theauthorgivesastrongemphasisondevelopingtheunderstandingofthegeneraltheorythroughmorethan1000simpleexercises,withcompletesolutions or detailed hints. The book will prepare readers for studying modern treatmentsof Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, electromagnetism, gauge fields, relativity andgravitation.
 DifferentialGeometryandLieGroupsforPhysicists
iswellsuitedforcoursesinphysics,mathematics and engineering for advanced undergraduate or graduate students, and canalso be used for active self-study. The required mathematical background knowledge doesnot go beyond the level of standard introductory undergraduate mathematics courses.
