Lectures on Algebraic Topology

Distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society. Rosebrock, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge,— I am sure that any experienced mathematician could find here new ways and tips, at least of an expository nature, of presenting these classical topics in the classroom. On the other hand, the use of the basics of simplicial homology theory to attain deep results on more geometrical environments are given in the same geometrical but rigorous language.

Please switch it on to enable full functionality of the website. This makes the book suitable for both classroom lecturew and for independent study. Some of them are provided to encourage and puzzle the independent reader as well as to make them evaluate their knowledge.

The basics of homotopy theory are then presented in very brief terms. After the introduction of the degree of a self map on a manifold, and with the few tools developed at that point, the author readily presents the homotopy classification of immersions of the circle into the plane and the fundamental theorem of algebra, and shows that a vector filed on the 2-sphere has a singular point.


Matveev S.V. Lectures on Algebraic Topology

Citations in Web of Science: On one hand, some aspects of algebraic topology are presented in a not commonly used approach for instance, the computation of the fundamental group of the complement of lecfures knots. Basic and classical properties of simplicial homology together with some applications are then presented.

Then, the author introduces cellular homology and highlights the computational properties of this approach. The book begins with homology theory, which is introduced from the geometric approach of simplicial homology. Lectures on Algebraic Topology At a first glance, algeebraic nice, short book is comparable to other brief texts of a similar vein. It presents elements of both homology theory and homotopy theory, and includes various applications.

The author’s intention is to rely on the geometric approach by appealing to the reader’s own intuition to help understanding. It is proved that the restriction of the Zeeman conjecture onto special polyhedra is equivalent to the union of the Poincare conjecture and the Andrews—Curtis conjecture. Its main purpose is to introduce the reader to the basics of algebraic topology and in topopogy to homology theory and its applications which is described in depth – about three-quarters of the book is devoted to it and homotopy theory.


Here follows an example of this: At a first glance, this nice, short book is comparable to other brief texts of a similar vein. For the graduate student, or the outsider to algebraic topology with some mathematical knowledge and with interests in other branches, this book is also of help. Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams. It is an important branch of modern mathematics with a wide degree of applicability to other fields, including geometric topology, differential geometry, functional analysis, differential equations, algebraic geometry, number theory, and theoretical physics.
