Differential Geometry And Tensors by K.K. Dube
Book Summary:

The purpose of this book is to give a simple, lucid, rigorous and comprehensive account of fundamental notions of Differential Geometry and Tensors. The book is self-contained and divided in two parts. Section A deals with Differential Geometry and Section B is devoted to the study of Tensors.

Section A deals with : theory of curves, envelopes and developables; curves on surfaces and fundamental magnitudes, curvature of surfaces and lines of curvature; fundamental equations of surface theory; and, geodesics.

Section B deals with : tensor algebra; tensor calculus; Christoffel symbols and their properties; Riemann symbols and Einstein space, and their properties; physical components of contravariant and covariant vectors; geodesics and parallelism of vectors; and, differentiable manifolds, charts, atlases.

Audience of the Book :
This book has been systematically organized in a easy way to read. This book will surve as suitable text cum reference book for the students of M.Sc. and B.Sc. honours from various universities.
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1. Theory of curves, envelopes and developables.
