Introduction to Differential Topology by Uwe Kaiser

This book gives a deeper account of basic ideas of differential topology than usual in introductory texts. Also many more examples of manifolds like matrix groups and Grassmannians are worked out in detail. Topics covered includes: Continuity, compactness and connectedness, Smooth manifolds and maps, Regular values and Sard’s theorem, Manifolds with boundary and orientations, Smooth homotopy and vector bundles, Intersection numbers, vector fields and Euler characteristic.
