There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Characteristic Classes of Complex Vector Bundles. A very detailed study of the concept of degree, linking numbers, and indexes of vector fields is given, as preparation for later discussions on Morse theory and the Poincare-Hopf theorem. Want to Read saving….
The book can get quite esoteric calclus quickly, and I feel somehow that it could have been more natural to insert the example of cohomology from calculus given in the first chapter after differential forms, for example. Cohomology of Projective and Grassmannian Bundles. Who states a theorem like this?
I am now thinking of giving up and looking for some other slower-paced text, so slow is my progress through this book. MadsenJxrgen Tornehave. Goodreads helps you keep caluclus of books you want to read.
go Arian Gholizadeh is currently reading it Oct 11, A fairly long list of exercises is given in the back of the book, and the reader should work most of these in order to be able to understand the results in the book. The text includes over exercises, and gives the background necessary for the modern developments in gauge theory and geometry in four dimensions, but it also serves as an introductory course in algebraic topology. Cohomoolgy Calculus to Cohomology: It will be invaluable anyone who wishes to know about cohomology, curvature, and their applications.

Holidaylalala marked it as to-read Nov 12, In summary, if you can understand this book it is probably because you have learned the material from a more digestible source, such as John Lee’s excellent Smooth Manifolds, Tu’s Introduction to Manifolds or Bott and Tu’s Differential Forms and Algebraic Topology.
