Geometrical Background

Chapter
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 141)

Abstract

In this preliminary chapter we have gathered together a brief synopsis of those items from differential geometry upon which the main development of the text will be built. Most of the material is standard so that more detailed expositions are readily available, although, when references seem called for, we will tend to favor [N4].
