Practice session

  • Tuesday 16:15-17:00, room F3. First time Jan.18.


  • D. Barden & C. Thomas, An Introduction to Differential Manifolds, Imperial College Press
  • B. Dundas , see below. In practice, we have been following this book rather than Barden &Thomas, because the latter book became available at the book store very late, and it is more advanced and too brief on many topics.

Note. The recent edition of Kosinski's book (see above) is also interesting because of the new appendix on Perelman's work and the Poincare conjecture
