Exterior analysis uses differential forms (a mathematical technique) to analyze curves, surfaces, and structures. Exterior Analysis is a first-of-its-kind resource that uses applications of differential forms, offering a mathematical approach to solve problems in defining a precise measurement to ensure structural integrity. The book provides methods to study different types of equations and offers detailed explanations of fundamental theories and techniques to obtain concrete solutions to determine symmetry. It is a useful tool for structural, mechanical and electrical engineers, as well as physicists and mathematicians.
