Problems on smooth manifolds

  1. Aug 5, 2011 #1
    Right now, I'm reading through Lee's Intro to Smooth Manifolds and I was wondering if there is a website somewhere that has problems different from the book. Or if there is another book out there that covers about the same material as Lee's that would be good to.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are many many books about smooth manifold theory. Just browse amazon.com.

    The book An Introduction to Manifolds by Tu is actually even more gentle than Lee. Less gentle but still good are Spivak, Lang, Warner just to name a few.

    A good companion book is Milnor's Topology from the Differentiable Viewpoint. a short intense book. Many methematicians esteem it. It has good problems at the end.

    Differentiable Forms in Algebraic Topology is a hard book but incredibly good.
