# Diffeology

Share this page
*Patrick Iglesias-Zemmour*

Diffeology is an extension of differential
geometry. With a minimal set of axioms, diffeology allows us to deal
simply but rigorously with objects which do not fall within the usual
field of differential geometry: quotients of manifolds (even
non-Hausdorff), spaces of functions, groups of diffeomorphisms, etc.
The category of diffeology objects is stable under standard
set-theoretic operations, such as quotients, products, coproducts,
subsets, limits, and colimits. With its right balance between rigor
and simplicity, diffeology can be a good framework for many problems
that appear in various areas of physics.

Actually, the book lays the foundations of the main fields of
differential geometry used in theoretical physics: differentiability,
Cartan differential calculus, homology and cohomology, diffeological
groups, fiber bundles, and connections. The book ends with an open
program on symplectic diffeology, a rich field of application of the
theory. Many exercises with solutions make this book appropriate
for learning the subject.
