These notes were developed as a supplement to a course on Differential Geometry at the advanced undergraduate level, which the author has taught. This texts has an early introduction to differential forms and their applications to Physics.

The historical driving force of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.

In this text the author presents an overview of differential geometry. Topics covered: Topological Manifolds and differentiable structure; Tangent and cotangent spaces; Fibre bundles; Geodesics and connexions; Riemann curvature; etc.

The book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. By the use of vector methods the presentation is both simplified and condensed, and students are encouraged to reason geometrically rather than analytically.
