In this post we will see A Course of Differential Geometry and Topology – A. Mishchenko and A. Fomenko. Earlier we had seen the Problem Book on Differential Geometry and Topology by these two authors which is the associated problem book for this course.
About the book
The present course deals with the fundamentals of differential geometry and topology whose present state is the culmination of contributions of generations of mathematicians.
The English edition has been thoroughly revised in line with comments and suggestions, made by our readers, the mistakes and misprints that were detected have been corrected. This is essentially a textbook for modern course on differential geometry and topology, which is much wider than the traditional courses on classical differential geometry, and it covers many branches of mathematics a knowledge of which has become essential for a modern mathematical education. We hope that a reader who has mastered this material will be able to do independent research both in geometry and related fields. To gain a deeper understanding of the material of this book, we recommend the reader should solve the questions in A. S. Mishchenko, Yu. P. Solovyev and A. T. Fomenko Problems in Differential Geometry and Topology which was specially compiled to accompany this course.
The book was translated from the Russian by Anatoly Talshev and was first published by Mir in 1988.

Make it new post !!!
There are no pdf/dvju files on those links.
How can I buy a copy of this book? I need to buy several other Mir books. Please let me know.
Hi to everyone, I want to share the set of 5 volumes of Artobolevsky – Mechanism in modern engineering design , at the moment only one of the 7 book is missing (volume 5 par 2)
I will very happy if anyone can provide the missing book.
You can download the pdf file from
if you find any problem to download the books pls let me know,
Hi to everyone, I want to share the LAST book of the set.
Volumes 5 part 2
Artobolevsky – Mechanism in modern engineering design
You can download the FULL set of pdf files from
Hi Community, Can you guys try to locate a pdf or djvu of Lectures in Geometry by Postnikov M M.
Its a 5 volume set of which 3 are readily available on the internet ie Books 1, 2 and 5. Book 4 (differential geometry) has not been translated in English.
i am looking for Book 3 – Smooth Manifolds
The links to Books 1,2, and 5 are below for those interested.
Thanks for the good work.
A bit late, but I’m currently scanning Postnikov’s smooth manifolds (Vol. 1 and 2), although it may take a while (a few weeks at least). My copies of the 2 volumes of Semester IV – Differential Geometry are available only in French, but I plan to scan these as well in the hope that someone may attempt a translation if the books were more easily available. Look out on libgen for this!
P.S. In case you’re interested in purchasing these books in print, they’re available at urss.ru. Here is the link to the full set – http://urss.ru/cgi-bin/db.pl?lang=en&blang=ru&page=Book&id=8295
Thanks, please post the links once you do. If you need any help in cleaning the scans or digitising do let us know.
PS: at 6K INR the book is too costly 🙂
