This can be an creation to noncommutative geometry, with exact emphasis on these situations the place the constitution algebra, which defines the geometry, is an algebra of matrices over the advanced numbers. purposes to effortless particle physics also are mentioned. This moment variation is carefully revised and contains new fabric on truth stipulations and linear connections plus examples from Jordanian deformations and quantum Euclidean areas. just some familiarity with traditional differential geometry and the idea of fiber bundles is thought, making this booklet available to graduate scholars and beginners to this box.

This introductory textual content is the 1st booklet approximately quantum important bundles and their quantum connections that are traditional generalizations to non-commutative geometry of important bundles and their connections in differential geometry. To make for a extra self-contained publication there's additionally a lot historical past fabric on Hopf algebras, (covariant) differential calculi, braid teams and suitable conjugation operations.
