Integration of Differential Forms

We have seen that manifolds do not have a canonical measure, but it can be shown (6.1.3) that there is a canonical way of integrating a d-form over an oriented d-dimensional manifold. This is a fundamental fact. It provides the framework for Stokes’ theorem, an essential tool that relates submani-folds-with-boundary with their boundaries.
