Exterior Algebra and Differential Forms

  • Stephen Bruce Sontz
Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


We give a brief treatment of these topics. The crucial concept here is that of a differential k-form on a manifold. But before discussing that, we have to present a bit of exterior algebra.
