Cohomology, Connections, Curvature and Characteristic Classes David Mond Octo 1 Introduction Let’s begin with a little vector analysis (also known as \Physics"). Consider a point source of uid, such as a burst water-main, on a perfectly uniform plane.

Thewater spreadsout uniformlyfromthe source, witha uniformdepth, andsowe can measure. Differential geometry, as its name implies, is the study of geometry using differential calculus. It dates back to Newton and Leibniz in the seventeenth century, but it was not until the nineteenth century, with the work of Gauss on surfaces and Riemann on the curvature tensor, that differential geometry flourished and its modern foundation was.

The first half of the book is an introduction to the de Rham cohomology, going through the construction and establishing some basic properties. The style is comparable to how (co)homology is introduced in an introductory algebraic topology text, except that it slowly introduces the theory of.

The set-up mentioned in your question also appears in the paper "Differential characters and cohomology of the moduli of flat Connections" by Marco Castrillón López, Roberto Ferreiro Pérez. The desired computation of the curvature is in proposition 3 on page 6, and uses equivariant cohomology in the Cartan model.

Hope this helps. Sectional curvature is a further, equivalent but more geometrical, description of the curvature of Riemannian manifolds. It is a function () which depends on a section (i.e. a 2-plane in the tangent spaces). It is the Gauss curvature of the -section at p; here -section is a locally defined piece of surface which has the plane as a tangent plane at p, obtained from geodesics which start at p in.
