Topics In Differential Geometry And Calculus Of Variations By Parmanand Gupta
In writing this book, the author has placed great emphasis on the fundamental concepts and methods of proofs of articles. I have provided sufficient number of illustrative examples on each concept. To reinforce the concepts developed in the definitions and articles, several exercises have been given at proper places.
