|概要|| This treatment of differential geometry and the mathematics required for general relativity makes the subject accessible, for the first time, to anyone familiar with elementary calculus in one variab...e and with some knowledge of vector algebra. The emphasis throughout is on the geometry of the mathematics, which is greatly enhanced by the many illustrations presenting figures of three and more dimensions as closely as the book form will allow.
A text for a graduate course in differential geometry in a mathematics or physics curriculum. Presents the mathematics required for general relativity. Assumes elementary calculus in one variable and some vector algebra. First published in 1977. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR続きを見る
