Geometric Integration Theory, Hardback Book

Description

This textbook introduces geometric measure theory through the notion of currents.

Currents, continuous linear functionals on spaces of differential forms, are a natural language in which to formulate types of extremal problems arising in geometry, and can be used to study generalized versions of the Plateau problem and related questions in geometric analysis.

Motivating key ideas with examples and figures, this book is a comprehensive introduction ideal for both self-study and for use in the classroom.

The exposition demands minimal background, is self-contained and accessible, and thus is ideal for both graduate students and researchers.
