Differential Forms

Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


Having studied tensors and alternating tensors from the purely algebraic point of view, we now consider functions whose values are tensors, or especially, alternating tensors. These are called tensor fields, and alternating tensor fields are called differential forms. They have many applications in geometry and analysis, as well as physics.
