"Differential manifolds: a basic approach for experimental physicists" by Paul Baillon,  World Scientific, 2013, ISBN 978-981-4449-56-4.

Differential manifold is the framework of particle physics and astrophysics nowadays. It is important for all research physicists to be accustomed to it, and even experimental physicists should be able to manipulate equations and expressions in this framework.

This book gives a comprehensive description of the basics of differential manifold with a full proof of elements. A large part of the book is devoted to the basic mathematical concepts, which are all necessary for the development of the differential manifold.

This book is self-consistent; it starts from first principles. The mathematical framework is the set theory with its axioms and its formal logic. No special knowledge is needed.

Coffee will be served from 3.30 p.m.
