From the Jacket

Differentiable manifolds abd the differential and integral calculus of their associated structures, such as vectors, tensors, and differential forms are of great importance in many areas of mathematics and its applications. Although basically and extension of advanced, or multivariable calculus, the leap from Euclidean space to manifol...
