Gianluca geimetry it Aug 21, This includes not only the traditional area of general relativity but also the theory of Yang-Mills fields, nonlinear sigma models and other types of nonlinear field systems that feature in modern quantum field theory.
Path Integrals in Physics: These lecture notes are the content Xin Zhao rated it it was ok Sep 12, Xaris rated it it was amazing Dec 29, To ask other readers questions about Modern Differential Geometry for Physicistsplease sign up. These lecture notes physicksts the content of an introductory course on modern, coordinate-free differential geometry which is taken ihsam first-year theoretical physics PhD students, or by students attending the one-year MSc course?
A number of small corrections and additions have also been made.
The book is concerned entirely with mathematics proper, although the emphasis and detailed topics fog been chosen bearing in mind the way in which differential geometry is applied to modern theoretical physics. And after reading physicisys book, I can understand why it is usually presented in the other way!
Isham World Scientific- Science – pages 2 Reviews https: This edition of the text contains an additional chapter that introduces some of the basic ideas of general topology needed in differential geometry.

Really good book but, as a physicist, I think it goes backwards in the way the topic is usually presented. Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces?

Chris Aldrich added it Dec 14, Chandra Prakash marked it as to-read Aug 02, In the introduction to differential geometry the author lays considerable stress on the basic ideas of “tangent space structure”, which he develops from several different points of view – some geometrical, others more algebraic.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Does exactly what it says on the tin, taking particular care to explain traditional physicist abuses of notation in explicit mathematician-friendly terms. Annalisa rated it really liked it Jul 17, The first provides an introduction to general topology, the second covers introductory co-ordinate-free differential geometry, the third examines geometrical aspects of the theory of Lie groups and Lie group actions on manifolds, and the fourth provides an introduction to modren theory of fibre bundles.
