One of the basic courses in the area of general differential geometry. Notions from algebra and real analysis are amalgamated and developed in a new, geometrical direction. We define the notions of tensor and exterior algebras, differential forms in R^n and their integrals over k-dimensional surfaces in R^n. We define also smooth manifolds with border, tangent vectors, vector and tensor fields, integral of a differential form on a manifold and the highlight is the proof of the general Stokes theorem. Last but not least is the notion of integral of a function on a Riemannian manifold.
