By Andrew H. Wallace

This self-contained textual content is appropriate for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars and should be used both after or simultaneously with classes usually topology and algebra. It surveys a number of algebraic invariants: the basic staff, singular and Cech homology teams, and various cohomology groups.
Proceeding from the view of topology as a kind of geometry, Wallace emphasizes geometrical motivations and interpretations. as soon as past the singular homology teams, in spite of the fact that, the writer advances an knowing of the subject's algebraic styles, leaving geometry apart for you to research those styles as natural algebra. various routines look through the textual content. as well as constructing scholars' pondering when it comes to algebraic topology, the routines additionally unify the textual content, considering that a lot of them characteristic effects that seem in later expositions. wide appendixes provide important reports of heritage material.

Automorphisms of Surfaces after Nielsen and Thurston

This e-book, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a path given by way of Andrew Casson on the college of Texas, is designed to function an creation to the functions of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. particularly it presents a concise exposition of the paintings of Neilsen and Thurston at the automorphisms of surfaces.

Cobordisms and spectral sequences

Cobordism is likely one of the most elementary notions of algebraic topology. This e-book is dedicated to spectral sequences relating to cobordism conception: the spectral series of a singularity, the Adams-Novikov spectral series, and purposes of those and different sequences to the research of cobordism earrings

Algebraic topology: homology and cohomology

This self-contained textual content is appropriate for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars and should be used both after or at the same time with classes quite often topology and algebra. It surveys a number of algebraic invariants: the elemental crew, singular and Cech homology teams, and quite a few cohomology teams.

Frequently the G-action on M(e) is trivial; in these cases the composite p r is just multiplication by p. A map f : M + N between Mackey functors consists of l lomomorphisn~s f(1): M(1) ~ N(1) and f(e) : M(e) -+ N(e) 57 which commute with p and r in the obvious sense. The map f(e) must also be G-equivariant. The category ~fft of Mackey functors is a complete and cocomplete abelian category. The limit or colimit of a diagram in ~ is formed by taking the limit or colimit of the corresponding two diagrams consisting of the abelian groups associated to G / G and to G/e.

If X is a CW complex with cells only in even dimensions and R is a ring, then, by an elementary result in cellular cohomology theory, the ordinary eohomology H*(X;R) of X with R coefficients is a free, 7/-graded R-module.
