comment Topologies on n-manifolds
Well... by definition of a manifold, any topology of a manifold must the same topology (o equivalent) to the usual topology, as it must be locally homeomorphic to $\mathbb R^n$ with the usual topology.

Ok, I see it. Thank you very much

Thank you. How do you get from $\ddot x-C^2 /x^3=0$ to the solution $x(t)$?

comment Let $G=\mathbb Z_4 \times \mathbb Z_2$. Find all $H$ subgroups of $G$ of order 2, so that $G / H$ is cyclic.
Oh that was your question... I'm sorry, well We already found all the subgroups of order $2$, now do you hav any problem in computing the quotient groups $G/H$ Checking if it' cyclic is checking if the identity $H$ generates the whole group $G/H$.

comment Help understanding a proof in differential geometry
I see your "firstly", I just don't see why it's neccesary in the argument. The fact that there are a finite number of points in which $df$ is singular comes from the expression of $P'$, right?

Thank you both, it was a lot simpler than I thought.

Ok, I think I got it. Thank you.

comment How to prove a $k$-$1$ differential form is simple
I see that particular case, thank you. I was trying to relate the fact that 1 forms are obviously simple and that the space they span has the same dimension as the space of k-1 forms.

@ReneSchipperus I'm sorry, in your first comment, with both you were talking about the space of $k$-$1$ forms and what else?

comment How to prove a $k$-$1$ differential form is simple
@ReneSchipperus Hm? I see they must be a linear combination of the $k$ linearly independent $k$-$1$ forms, but I don't see it. I promise I've given it many thoughts. And the fact I've always seen it stated without proof makes me feel stupid xD

@ReneSchipperus Yes, but is that enough? I don't see it.

comment Book recommendations for someone interested in higher mathematics?
I first learnt group theory (only finite groups), then topology, and then more group theory (more about representation theory and continous groups). As for analysis, I've never learnt more than what a regular physicist studies, and I notice a lack of knowledge I would like to get rid off :)

comment Book recommendations for someone interested in higher mathematics?
I'm also a physicist (student), and Munkres' Topology is the book I used to learn about it. I don't know the other two, but that one is, in my opinion, great. Very understandable, and everything is greatly explained. I really recommend it.

No, but the curvature tensor $R$ is $0$, and I want to calculate $R'$-
