P.A.M. Dirac (1902-1984) was Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and later taught at Florida State University.
"Seasoned physicists will appreciate the book as an elegant, well-organized introduction to the basic mathematics and physics of curved space."--Physics Today "Dirac was a man of few words, and this little book-with 35 sections spanning 69 pages-exhibits the concise, direct style that was his trademark. Seasoned physicists will appreciate the book as an elegant, well-organized introduction to the basic mathematics and physics of curved space."--R. Corby Hovis, Physics Today
