9780125140805: Topology and Geometry for Physicists

Differential geometry and topology are essential tools for many theoretical physicists, particularly in the study of condensed matter physics, gravity, and particle physics. Written by physicists for physics students, this text introduces geometrical and topological methods in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. It assumes no detailed background in topology or geometry, and it emphasizes physical motivations, enabling students to apply the techniques to their physics formulas and research. 
"Thoroughly recommended" by The Physics Bulletin, this volume's physics applications range from condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics to elementary particle theory. Its main mathematical topics include differential forms, homotopy, homology, cohomology, fiber bundles, connection and covariant derivatives, and Morse theory.

From the Back Cover :

This volume provides an easily comprehensible introduction to topological and geometrical methods in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. No detailed knowledge of topology or geometry is required in the reader, and advanced undergraduate or graduate physicists should have no difficulty in understanding the material.
The style and approach of the book reflect the fact that the authors are themselves physicists, and have taken trouble to clarify difficult mathematical concepts and to emphasize their physical motivation. The applications range from condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics to elementary particle theory, while the main mathematical topics are differential forms, homotopy, homology, cohomology, fibre bundles, connection and covariant derivatives and Morse theory.

About the Author :
