Geometry, Topology and Physics by Mikio Nakahara This work introduces several current mathematical methods to postgraduate students of theoretical physics. This is achieved by presenting applications of the mathematics to physics; high-energy physics; and general relativity and condensed matter physics. An introduction to mathematical physics. This book is intended primarily as a class-book for mathematical students and as an introduction to the advanced treatises dealing with the subjects of the different chapters, but since the analysis is kept as simple as possible, It will be useful for chemists and others who wish to learn the principles.

The special and general theories of relativity require a rather different type of mathematics. This was group theory, which played an important role in both quantum field theory and differential was, however, gradually supplemented by topology and functional analysis in the mathematical description of cosmological as well as quantum field theory phenomena.

Topology, as a well-defined mathematical discipline, originates in the early part of the twentieth century, but some isolated results can be traced back several centuries.

Among these are certain questions in geometry investigated by Leonhard paper on the Seven Bridges of Königsberg is regarded as one of the first practical applications of topology.
