Course content

The following nine subjects are covered. Two of these will, however, only be treated in a cursory manner.


1. Differentiable manifolds in Euclidean spaces.
2. Abstract differentiable manifolds.
3. Tangent spaces, differentiable maps and differentials.
4. Submanifold, immersion and imbedding.
