## Textbook

- J.M. Lee,
*Introduction to Smooth manifolds*, Springer-Verlag. The first edition (2003) has essentially the same contents, but is organized differently.

We may occationally make use of texts/exercises in other books, see below. In particular, the following book can be useful for the student as a supplementary text, it is perhaps more elementary but covers much of our topics. It is freely accessible on the web (thanks Bjørn!):

- Bjørn Dundas, Differential Topology. Version January 2013
