Those of you who know me know that my formal education is in physics, not mathematics. So hopefully you'll excuse the dumb question, but in what course would one learn about extrinsic and intrinsic curvature? I have books on tensors, differential forms, topology, analysis, and advanced calculus. And yet the only 2 books I own that cover this material are 2 books on general relativity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What math books am I missing?
