Название: Lectures on the geometry of manifolds
Автор: Nicolaescu L.I.
The first chapter of this book introduces the reader to the concept of smooth manifold through abstract definitions and, more importantly, through many we believe relevant examples. In particular, we introduce at this early stage the notion of Lie group. The main geometric and algebraic properties of these objects will be gradually described as we progress with our study of the geometry of manifolds. Besides their obvious usefulness in geometry, the Lie groups are academically very friendly. They provide a marvelous testing ground for abstract results. We have consistently taken advantage of this feature throughout this book. As a bonus, by the end of these lectures the reader will feel comfortable manipulating basic Lie theoretic concepts.
