The first part of the “proof” involves writing down a function that is given by the definite integral of a two term expression. It will be invaluable anyone who wishes to know about cohomology, curvature, and their applications.

Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. The text includes over exercises, and gives the background necessary for the modern developments in gauge theory and geometry in four dimensions, but it also serves as an introductory course in algebraic topology. The De Rham theory is then used to prove the Brouwer fixed point theorem. That being said, the goals of the book are extremely ambitious and what author is attempting to accomplish is not easy and I give him credit for this attempt.
