Secret Chiefs 3 (or SC3) is an avant-garde group led by guitarist/composer Trey Spruance (of Mr. Bungle and formerly, Faith No More). Their studio recordings and tours have featured different line-ups, as the group performs a wide range of musical styles, mostly instrumental, including surf rock, Persian, neo-pythagorean, Indian, death metal, film music, electronic music, and various others.
The band's name was inspired by the "Secret Chiefs" said to inspire and guide various esoteric and mystical groups of the previous two centuries. Spruance has expressed interest in, and drawn inspiration from, various mystical or occult systems such as Sufism, Kabbalah, Hermeticism and alchemy.
I'm studying physics at university, but there has always been one subject in pure maths which always interested me- that is modular forms.
Is there an 'accessible' textbook on this topic? Can anyone recommend one? Is the GTM Springer 'A first course in modular forms' any good?
Partition each closed interval ##[a_i,b_i]## in the Cartesian product, ##A##.
Denote the partition for the i-th closed interval as ##\{x_i^1,\ldots,x_i^{k_i}\}##.
The Cartesian product of the partitions forms a partition of ##A## (think: a lattice of points that coincide with the points of each...
The last formula is what I was going for, since it arises as the momentum flux in fluid dynamics, but in the process I came across the rest of these formulas which I’m not sure about.

Why are n-forms called differential forms? What is differential about them? And why was the dx notation adopted for them? It must have something to do with the differential dx in calculus. But dx in calculus is an infinitesimal quantity. I don't see what n-forms have to do with infinitesimal...

By the Rank–nullity theorem,
$$
\dim V=\dim Im_{F}+\dim\ker\left(F\right)
\Rightarrow n=1+\dim\ker\left(F\right)
\Rightarrow \dim\ker\left(F\right)=n-1.
$$
Similarly, it follows that $$\dim\ker\left(G\right)=n-1.$$
This first part, for obvious reasons, is very clear.

First time looking at differential forms. What is the difference of the forms over R^n and on manifolds? Does the exterior product and derivative have different properties? (Is it possible to exaplain this difference without using the tangent space?)

Going out to my car this morning, I noticed that frost preferentially formed on non-vertical windows. I can come up with three explanations

So I heard a k-form is an object (function of k vectors) integrated over a k-dimensional region to yield a number. Well what about integrals like pressure (0-form?)over a surface to yield a vector? Or the integral of gradient (1-form) over a volume to yield a vector?
In particular I’m...
