Which GTM are you?


Recommended Posts

I've just realised that I didn't post the image of my own result. Of course there's not much difference in any of the books as they're all yellow. But that's not the point. Here we go (hoping that the image attachment will work):


If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Frank Warner's Foundations of Differentiable Manifolds and Lie Groups


I give a clear, detailed, and careful development of the basic facts on manifold theory and Lie Groups. I include differentiable manifolds, tensors and differentiable forms. Lie groups and homogenous spaces, integration on manifolds, and in addition provide a proof of the de Rham theorem via sheaf cohomology theory, and develop the local theory of elliptic operators culminating in a proof of the Hodge theorem. Those interested in any of the diverse areas of mathematics requiring the notion of a differentiable manifold will find me extremely useful.

<p>If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be W.B.R. Lickorish's <b><i>An Introduction to Knot Theory</i></b>.</p>


<p> I am an introduction to mathematical Knot Theory; the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. I consist of a selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed; Geometric Topology Manoeuvres, Combinatorics, and Algebraic Topology.



<p>Which Springer GTM would <i>you</i> be?
