Differential Forms on Riemannian Manifolds

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

Abstract

For a fuller development of the calculus of differential forms, we now proceed to Riemannian manifolds. Here we will encounter the star operator, the Laplace-de Rham operator, the Hodge decomposition, and Poincaré duality. We begin by considering the somewhat more general semi-Riemannian manifolds.
