Geometry, Topology and Physics, Second Edition (Graduate Student Series in Physics)

Buy
This book provides an introduction to the ideas and techniques of differential geometry and topology. It starts with a brief survey of quantum field theory, gauge theory, general relativity, vector spaces, and topology. Using many illustrations, exercises, and problems, the author demonstrates more elaborate concepts of topology and geometry, including fiber bundles, characteristic classes, and index theorems. New to this second edition is the proof of the index theorem in terms of supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The final two chapters examine anomalies in gauge field theories and the analysis of Polakov's bosonic string theory from the geometrical point of view.

…a very impressive book.
-Australian and New Zealand Physicists

The clarity of the presentation is enhanced by explicit calculations and diagrams; the proof of a theorem is given only when it is instructive and not very technical. There is also a large number of exercises and problems, and last but not least, an index … superb layout…
- Zentralblatt fur Mathematick un ihre Grenzgebiete

I believe that the book will not only boost modernization of the traditional courses of theoretical physics but will prompt the specialist in topology and differential geometry to have a closer look at the applications. So I welcome this second edition.
