Differential geometry arguably offers the smoothest transition from the standard university mathematics sequence of the first four semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the higher levels of abstraction and proof encountered at the upper division by mathematics majors. Today it is possible to describe differential geometry as "the study of structures on the tangent space," and this text develops this point of view.

This book, unlike other introductory texts in differential geometry, develops the architecture necessary to introduce symplectic and contact geometry alongside its Riemannian cousin. The main goal of this book is to bring the undergraduate ... Read more

Reviews for First Steps in Differential Geometry
From the book reviews: “This books presents an alternative route, aiming to provide the student with an introduction not only to Riemannian geometry, but also to contact and symplectic geometry. … the book is leavened with an excellent collection of illustrative examples, and a wealth of exercises on which students can hone their skills. Each chapter also includes a ... Read more
