Differential Geometry

Clifford Henry Taubes

Oxford University Press

This discussion of maps and vector bundles covers the pull-back construction; pull-backs and Grassmannians; pull-back of differential forms and push-forward of vector fields; invariant forms and vector fields on Lie groups; the exponential map on a matrix group; the exponential map and right/left invariance on Gl(n; ℂ) and its subgroups; and immersion, submersion, and transversality.

Keywords:   pull-back construction, Grassmannians, vector fields, Lie groups, matrix group, exponential map
