Textbook for undergraduate courses on geometry or for self study that reveals the intricacies of geometry.
Differential geometry and topology have become essential tools for many theoretical physicists. In particular, they are indispensable in theoretical studies of condensed matter physics, gravity, and particle physics. Geometry, Topology and Physics, Second Edition introduces the ideas and techniques of differential geometry and topology at a level suitable for postgraduate students and researchers in these fields. The second edition of this popular and established text incorporates a number of changes designed to meet the needs of the reader and reflect the development of the subject. The book features a considerably expanded first chapter, reviewing aspects of path integral quantization and gauge theories. Chapter 2 introduces the mathematical concepts of maps, vector spaces, and topology. The following chapters focus on more elaborate concepts in geometry and topology and discuss the application of these concepts to liquid crystals, superfluid helium, general relativity, and bosonic string theory. Later chapters unify geometry and topology, exploring fiber bundles, characteristic classes, and index theorems. New to this second edition is the proof of the index theorem in terms of supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The final two chapters are devoted to the most fascinating applications of geometry and topology in contemporary physics, namely the study of anomalies in gauge field theories and the analysis of Polakov's bosonic string theory from the geometrical point of view. Geometry, Topology and Physics, Second Edition is an ideal introduction to differential geometry and topology for postgraduate students and researchers in theoretical and mathematical physics.

Presents the proceedings of an international conference on complex geometry and related topics, held in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Osaka University, Osaka, Japan. The text focuses on the CR invariants, hyperbolic geometry, Yamabe-type problems, and harmonic maps.
You, too, can understand geometry -- just ask Dr. Math! Are things starting to get tougher in geometry class? Don't panic. Dr. Math--the popular online math resource--is here to help you figure out even the trickiest of your geometry problems. Students just like you have been turning to Dr. Math for years asking questions about math problems, and the math doctors at The Math Forum have helped them find the answers with lots of clear explanations and helpful hints. Now, with Dr. Math Presents More Geometry, you'll learn just what it takes to succeed in this subject. You'll find the answers to dozens of real questions from students in a typical geometry class. You'll also find plenty of hints and shortcuts for using coordinate geometry, finding angle relationships, and working with circles. Pretty soon, everything from the Pythagorean theorem to logic and proofs will make more sense. Plus, you'll get plenty of tips for working with all kinds of real-life problems. You won't find a better explanation of high school geometry anywhere!
This text was first published in 1897, and is based on Russell's Cambridge dissertation as well as lectures given during a journey through the USA. It provides both an insight into the foundations of Russell's philosophical thinking and an introduction to the philosophy of mathematics and logic. As such it should be a useful resource not only for students of philosophy, but also for those interested in Russell's philosophical development. The text consists of four chapters, which explore the various concepts of geometry and their philosophical implications, including an historical overview of the development of geometrical theory.
