A general treatment of dynamics is given by using algebras of differential forms on suitable differentiable manifolds. Physics is introduced by giving these forms the physical dimension of an action on space-time or of an entropy on a thermodynamic manifold. Properties of differentiable manifolds are able to take account for various dynamical features, both classical and quantal.
