Lyssia Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 Just for fun: http://www.math.mcgill.ca/~dsavitt/GTM.html I was the Warner book on manifolds and Lie groups. Which one are you? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Rakdos Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 You are J.-P. Serre's Linear Representations of Finite Groups. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Lyssia Posted December 6, 2005 Author Share Posted December 6, 2005 You are J.-P. Serre's Linear Representations of Finite Groups. Oh, and you didn't even include the picture? For shame! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

ydoaPs Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 You are Robin Hartshorne's Algebraic Geometry. i would have shown the picture, but the library computers use IE and it won't let me view the image Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Lyssia Posted December 6, 2005 Author Share Posted December 6, 2005 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.
