PREFACE

Differential g&etry has a long l&dry as a &ld of mathematics
and yet its rigorous foundaticvn in”&e realm of contemporary
mathematics is:nlatively new. We h& written this book, the
first of the twe;ivolumes of the Fdatiwdf D@nntial Geometry,
with the intition of provid& a”l v&&tic introduction to
differential ‘&ometry w&h @ also, &ve’ ‘a~ a reference book.
Our primary conce~ was to make it ,+l&&ta.@ed as much as
possible and to give compl& ~MO& of ali’&d&d results in the
foundation. We hope that; && pw has been $chieved with
the following arrangtments. In chapter I we have given a brief
survq ;of differentiablei m&nKMs, ,I$& mtips Ad ,fibre bundles.
The readers who-areu&amil& G&h &din.,qay learn thi subjects
from t+e books +f Chevotlley, ppin, Pontrjagin,
and Steenrod, listed in the Bilk aie our standard
references in Chapter I. We a coficise account
of tensor- algti &d MU& fiek& th&“&n&l theme of which
is the notiib;i ef8~h’aFtihc ‘k&ebr& of tensOr fields. In the
Appdiccs, we have @Gn some ‘r&t&s from topology, Lie grbup
theory and othirs which %ve n’eed & .the iain text. With these
preparations, the main t&t of thi book is &l&ontained.
Chapter II -c&ntains&e conilection theory of Ehresmann and
its lateq development. Results in this chapter are applied to
linear and affifie cdnnections in Chapter III atid to Riemannian
connections in Chapter IV. Mat~y basic results on normal
coordinates, convex neighborhoods, dis!ance, cotipleteness and
Monomy groups are’ p&&l here completely, including the di:
Rham decomposition thearem for Ri&mannian m&lds; ‘I -
In Chhpter v, -we ‘int&&ce the sectional curvature of’ a
Rieme lM%&Id.‘a&i tbt Spaces of constant curvattire. A
more complete treMment!&“&$ert& of Riemanni& manifolds
involving Hctional ‘&&+attrS depends on “talculus of iariations
and will tie given II. We’ discuss flat’ affine and
Riemannian connec a*. IV.
In Chapter VI; trqnsfornihtions and infinitesimal
transformations which p&cx+e a given linear connection or A
