The first eleven chapters in this volume, 18 through 28, contain material
that was developed in the third year of the three-year mathematical physics
sequence at the University of Colorado. The central concepts are groups,
manifolds, and differential geometry. I wish to thank Professors Wesley
Brittin and Russel Dubisch for extensive discussions of this material, and
I wish to thank Professor Wolf Beiglbock for advice and suggestions on the
overall plan and on the material on group representations.
The material in the last three chapters, related broadly to recent work in
differentiable dynamical systems, has been discussed in special courses on
hydrodynamic stability and seminars on mathematical physics. That
material is somewhat less well organized than the older subjects, but has
been included because it contains various concepts of great potential value
in physical science.
