9780125140805: Topology and Geometry for Physicists

Applications from condensed matter physics, statistical mechanics and elementary particle theory appear in the book. An obvious omission here is general relativity--we apologize for this. We originally intended to discuss general relativity. However, both the need to keep the size of the book within the reasonable limits and the fact that accounts of the topology and geometry of relativity are already available, for example, in The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time by S. Hawking and G. Ellis, made us reluctantly decide to omit this topic.

From the Back Cover:

This volume provides an easily comprehensible introduction to topological and geometrical methods in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. No detailed knowledge of topology or geometry is required in the reader, and advanced undergraduate or graduate physicists should have no difficulty in understanding the material.
The style and approach of the book reflect the fact that the authors are themselves physicists, and have taken trouble to clarify difficult mathematical concepts and to emphasize their physical motivation. The applications range from condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics to elementary particle theory, while the main mathematical topics are differential forms, homotopy, homology, cohomology, fibre bundles, connection and covariant derivatives and Morse theory.

About the Author:

Charles Nash is a Professor of Mathematics at the National University of Ireland. His main research interests are quantum field theory and differential topology.
