Giulian Wiggins marked it as to-read Feb 22, Holidaylalala marked it as to-read Nov 12, A Geometric Approach to Differential Forms. The first ten chapters study cohomology of open sets in Euclidean space, treat smooth manifolds and their cohomology and end with integration on manifolds.
It will be invaluable to anyone who wishes to know about cohomology, curvature, and their applications. It treats de Rham cohomology in an intellectually rigourous yet accessible manner which makes it ideal for a beginning graduate student.

Measure rated it really liked it Oct 06, This motivates the definition cohomplogy an Abelian semigroup of isomorphism classes of vector bundles over compact bases. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. However, the mathematical maturity needed to fully understand the topics is a great deal bigger than that.
Anand Joshi rated it it was amazing Jan 08, Very very nice book! They do however prove that a vector bundle over a compact base space has an inner product and they do this with the help of partitions of unity. Appendix B Invariant Polynomials.
Refresh and try again. Well, I find this a very difficult text, and have to supplement almost every page with form reading of Wikipedia to get the ideas. Also, they show how vector bundles over a compact base can be trivialized by taking the direct sum with a suitable bundle, called its complement. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

From Calculus to Cohomology: de Rham Cohomology and Characteristic Classes by Ib H. Madsen
The book can get quite esoteric very quickly, and I feel somehow that it could have been more natural to insert the example of cohomology from calculus given in the first chapter after differential forms, for example. Ea added it Dec 30, Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources.
