Introduction   to Differential Topology by Uwe Kaiser

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 Sards theorem, Manifolds with boundary and orientations, Smooth homotopy and vector bundles, Intersection numbers, vector fields and Euler characteristic.

Combinatorial Differential     Topology and Geometry (PDF 30p)

Combinatorial Differential Topology and Geometry (PDF 30p)

This note explains how two standard techniques from the study of smooth manifolds, Morse theory and Bochnerís method, can be adapted to aid in the investigation of combinatorial spaces.
