Invariants of Quadratic Differential Forms (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics Series No.24) available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Cambridge University Press
Written in the wake of the advent of Relativity by an author who made important contributions to projective and differential geometry, and topology, this early Cambridge Tract in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics aimed to assist students of the time from the fields of differential geometry and mathematical physics. Beginning by introducing formal preliminaries, the text continues, bringing the underlying differential invariant theory that to this day remains relevant in a range of geometrical and physical applications, to the fore.
