Description

This volume presents two sets of never-before-published notes from lectures given by S.-S. Chern. The set entitled “Differential Manifolds” gives a smooth and rapid introduction to differential manifolds and differential geometry, while the set entitled “Lectures on Integral Geometry” is an accessible introduction to that subject.

Also presented is a paper by Chern that serves as a gentle introduction to differential geometry, and reviews the status of global differential geometry in 1971.

This volume is part of the Surveys of Modern Mathematics book series.
