This includes not only the traditional area of general relativity but also the theory of Yang-Mills fields, nonlinear sigma models and other types of nonlinear field systems that feature in modern quantum field theory. Does exactly what it says on the tin, taking particular care to explain traditional physicist abuses of notation in explicit mathematician-friendly terms.

In the introduction to differential geometry the author lays considerable stress on the basic ideas of? No trivia or quizzes yet.

Isnam Fields and Fundamental Forces? The book is concerned entirely with mathematics proper, although the emphasis and detailed topics have been chosen bearing in mind the way in which differential geometry is applied to modern theoretical physics.

Isham World Scientific- Science – pages 2 Reviews https: This edition of the invaluable text Modern Differential Geometry for Physicists contains an additional chapter that introduces some of the basic ideas of general topology cifferential in differential geometry.

The first provides an introduction to general topology, the second covers introductory co-ordinate-free differential geometry, the third examines geometrical aspects of the theory of Lie groups and Lie group actions on manifolds, and the fourth provides an introduction to the theory of fibre bundles.
