The Mathematical Works of J. H. C. Whitehead, Volume 1: Differential Geometry contains all of Whitehead's published work on differential geometry, along with some papers on algebras. Most of these were written in the period 1929-1937, but a few later articles are included.
The book begins with a list of Whitehead's works, in chronological order of writing as well as a biographical note by M. H. A. Newman and Barbara Whitehead, and a mathematical appreciation by John Milnor. This is followed by separate chapters on topics such as linear connections; a method of obtaining normal representations for a projective connection; representation of projective spaces; convex regions in the geometry of paths; locally homogeneous spaces in differential geometry; and the decomposition of an infinitesimal group. Also included are chapters on locally homogeneous spaces in differential geometry; Maurer's equations; linear associative algebras; an expression of Hopf's invariant as an integral; and normalizators of transformation groups.
