Bundles, connections, metrics and curvature are the ‘lingua franca’ of modern differential geometry and theoretical physics. I think John Lee’s book, Riemannian Manifolds: Bundles, connections, metrics and curvature are the ‘lingua franca’ of modern differential geometry and theoretical physics.
Many of the tools used in differential topology are introduced The Hodge star Indexed list of propositions by subject Index. As Bakhoda says, Riemannian Manifolds will cover metrics, connections, etc, but there is also his book Introduction to Smooth Manifolds which is, in my opinion, one of the greatest math texts ever written alongside Aluffi’s Algebra: Algebra of vector bundles 5.
An Introduction to Curvature is great for everyone!
Many of the tools used in differential topology are introduced The Riemann curvature tensor taunes List of lemmas propositions corollaries and theorems. Differential Geometry Bundles, Connections, Metrics and Curvature 1 Clifford Henry Taubes Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics Introduction to many of the foundational concepts for modern mathematics, mathematical physics and theoretical physics in one volume Unique focus on the foundational material to provide a concise, coherent introduction to the subject Many of the classic examples in the subjects covered are fully worked out Proofs of most of the background material from differential topology provided The required linear algebra and complex function theory is presented in full Inspired by Bott’s famous harvard course.
Helpfully, proofs are offered for almost all assertions throughout. Ebook This title is available as an ebook.

Ruban and Jitesh S. Contents 1 Smooth manifolds. Milnor’s book on Characteristic Classes is good, but if I might make a suggestion that is a little off topic, I would suggest that you read Milnor’s book on Morse Theory. Reference request for some topics in Differential Geometry like connections, metrics, curvature etc.
My library Help Advanced Book Search. I have studied point set topology and basic manifold theory tangent spaces,vector fields, differential forms,integration, and basic de Rham Theory but have no knowledge of Algebraic Diffeerntial. Many of the tools used in differential topology are introduced and the basic results about differentiable manifolds, smooth maps, differential forms, vector fields, Lie groups, and Grassmanians are all presented here.

Differential Geometry – Paperback – Clifford Henry Taubes – Oxford University Press
Maps and vector bundles 6. He was awarded the American Mathematical Society’s Oswald Veblen Prize in for his work in differential geometry and topology.
Vector bundles with fiber Cn 7. I am considering reading this book ‘ Differential Geometry’ by Clifford Henry Taubes but I am not sure whether it is a good book. Metrics on vector bundles 8. Differential Geometry uses many of the classical tabes from, and applications of, the subjects it covers, in particular those where closed form expressions are available, to bring abstract ideas to life.
I would certainly second the suggestion of taking a look at any book by John Lee. It is good for learning the concepts of Metrics, Connections, Curvature, Geodesics and so on.
