Note on toposes and models of S.D.G.

  • René Lavendhomme
Part of the Kluwer Texts in the Mathematical Sciences book series (TMS, volume 13)


Here our aim is very different to that of the preceding chapters. In a sense our account of S.D.G. is finished. Now our objective is to show how it is possible to understand the idea of an intuitionistic set theory, or, more precisely, the concept of toposes. We shall also indicate some models of S.D.G., so showing how results can be applied to classical differential geometry.
