Geometry of Vector Sheaves An Axiomatic Approach to Differential Geometry Volume II: Geometry. Examples and Applications

This two-volume monograph obtains fundamental notions and results of the standard differential geometry of smooth (CINFINITY) manifolds, without using differential calculus. Here, the sheaf-theoretic character is emphasised. This has theoretical advantages such as greater perspective, clarity and un...
