“The exterior derivative, integration, and Stokes’ Theorem”

We continue our discussion of differentiable manifolds by talking about the exterior derivative and how to integrate n-forms. We will then prove Stokes’ Theorem which is a generalization of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Time permitting, we will begin to talk about Riemannian and Hermitian structures on manifolds.
