This self-contained treatment assumes only some knowledge of real numbers and real analysis. The first three chapters focus on the basics of point-set topology, after which the text proceeds to homology groups and continuous mapping, barycentric subdivision, and simplicial complexes. Exercises form an integral part of the text. edition. This book is a clear exposition, with exercises, of basic ideas of algebraic topology: homology, homotopy groups, and cohomology rings.

The viewpoint is quite classical in spirit, and stays well within the conﬁnes of pure algebraic topology. In a sense, the book could have been written thirty or forty years ago since virtually everything in it is at least that old.

In the end, the overriding pedagogical goal has been the introduction of basic ideas and methods of thought. Our understanding of the foundations of algebraic topology has undergone sub-tle but serious changes since I began teaching this Size: 1MB.

The text consists of material from the first five chapters of the author's earlier book, Algebraic Topology; an Introduction (GTM 56) together with almost all of his book, Singular Homology Theory (GTM 70). The material from the two earlier books has been substantially revised, corrected, and brought up to date.

Hi everybody. Next year I will start an undergraduate course on algebraic topology. Which book would you suggest as a good introduction to this matter. My first options are the following: "A First Course in Algebraic Topology" by Czes Kosniowski.

We will be using the following two textbooks: 1) Homotopic topology, by o,and acher. Homotopy and homotopy equivalence. CW complexes. Cellular approximation. Category theory, functors and adjointness. Fundamental group and its computation. Coverings and their classification.

Download This introduction to some basic ideas in algebraic topology is devoted to the foundations and applications of homology theory. After the essentials of singular homology and some important applications are given, successive topics covered include attaching spaces, finite CW complexes, cohomology products, manifolds, Poincare duality, and fixed point theory.

This book provides an accessible introduction to algebraic topology, a field at the intersection of topology, geometry and algebra, together with its applications.

Moreover, it covers several related topics that are in fact important in the overall scheme of algebraic topology. Homology and cohomology were invented in (what's now called) the de Rham context, where cohomology classes are (classes of) differential forms and homology classes are (classes of) domains you can integrate them over.

I think it's basically impos.Peter May said famously that algebraic topology is a subject poorly served by its textbooks. Sadly, I have to agree. Although we have a freightcar full of excellent first-year algebraic topology texts - both geometric ones like Allen Hatcher's and algebraic-focused ones like the one by Rotman and more recently, the beautiful text by tom Dieck (which I'll be reviewing for MAA Online in 2 .
