what are some good places, schools, to study differential geometry in terms of physics?
JJ. Binney over at Oxford teaches a course on Geometry and Physics. I can't imagine that would be considered less than a "good" school to study. He has lecture notes for the course available online: http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/users/JamesBinney/lectures.html
