The book develops the theory of differential forms elegantly and directly. However, the second paragraph states 'We have already considered 'Chapter 1, paragraph 1.8, Differential Calculus' the normed vector space L^p(E,F) of p-linear maps...' This is sort of like those Mel Bay guitar books that were about 5 pages long and referenced other Mel Bay guitar books, no? There are some obvious typos too. As someone who has taught the subject many times, I found the book useful as Cartan had a deep and comfortable understanding of the topic, which I can take advantage of to smooth out my own exposition in class. I don't think the book is for beginners.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
