Guggenheimer's, also by Dover, is the second best but by far.
The concepts are explained in a very approachable style and in a nice order to give you an understanding of diff. geometry as well as what you might use it for..
There is also a collection of formulae at the end which makes for a good review and enhances the book's usefulness as a reference.
This book is great! Especially with all the problems and solution in the back.
Only thing I can say is disappointing is that after introducing tensors with n dimensions... Read more
The book is readable and informative. I liked the level of data, not overly theoretical, but very understandable. It is a very clear text.Published 9 months ago by happy joe
Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature,... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Ed Harris
Differential geometry is concerned with geometric structures on differentiable manifolds, and this book goes into them. Read morePublished 14 months ago by jibber_jabber
I can only agree with all the positive reviewers !
Kreyszig's style in treating such a difficult subject as differential geometry and its associated tensors, is in the... Read more
This is a surprisingly modern work when one considers the 1959 publication date. It covers both Riemannian geometry and covariant differentiation, as well as the classical... Read morePublished 14 months ago by Alan U. Kennington
I wanted to learn differential geometry and I found this book. It is really good as most of the Dover mathematics and physics books are. This is a really good and challenging book.Published on March 10, 2012 by PersonReviewing
