Abstract

In this chapter we reintroduce manifolds in a somewhat more mathematically rigorous manor while simultaneously trying not to overwhelm you with details. As always we will still place an emphasis on conceptual understanding and the big picture. Manifold theory is a vast and rich subject and there are numerous books that present manifolds in a completely rigorous manor with all the gory technical details made explicit. When you understand this chapter you will be prepared to tackle these texts.
