Geometric Integration Theory

Length: 400 pages7 hours


Geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this treatment of geometric integration theory consists of three parts: an introduction to classical theory, a postulational approach to general theory, and a final section that continues the general study with Lebesgue theory.
The introductory chapter shows how the simplest hypotheses lead to the employment of basic tools. The opening third of the treatment, an examination of classical theory, leads to the theory of the Riemann integral and includes a study of smooth (i.e., differentiable) manifolds. The second part, on general theory, explores abstract integration theory, some relations between chains and functions, general properties of chains and cochains, and chains and cochains in open sets. The third and final section surveys Lebesgue theory in terms of flat cochains and differential forms, Lipschitz mappings, and chains and additive set functions. Appendixes on vector and linear spaces, geometric and topological preliminaries, and analytical preliminaries, along with indexes of symbols and terms, conclude the text.
