As a part of the clinical task in reference to the seventieth birthday of the Adam Mickiewicz college in Poznan, a global convention on algebraic topology used to be held. within the ensuing lawsuits quantity, the emphasis is on gigantic survey papers, a few awarded on the convention, a few written to that end.

Automorphisms of Surfaces after Nielsen and Thurston

This booklet, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a direction given through Andrew Casson on the collage of Texas, is designed to function an advent to the functions of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. specifically it offers a concise exposition of the paintings of Neilsen and Thurston at the automorphisms of surfaces.

Cobordisms and spectral sequences

Cobordism is among the most elementary notions of algebraic topology. This e-book is dedicated to spectral sequences concerning 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 will be used both after or at the same time with classes more often than not topology and algebra. It surveys numerous algebraic invariants: the basic staff, singular and Cech homology teams, and a number of cohomology teams.

The proof of this result is technical in nature and we refer for it to [2], thm. 1. In order to relate Liick's obstruction wG(X) to wHa(X)'s a sort of the realization result for the equivariant finiteness obstruction is needed.

L ( p , pa ), where l(p, Pl ) is the double mapping cylinder of p and Pl, mad p is the obvious map between the double mapping cylinders. The theorem of Held and Sjerve is obtained as the particular case when both A and E1 equal a point. Then ** is a presentation of M as a nmpping cone M = B Ug CC, and * says that there exists a ill)ration p : E ~ B which restricts to a fibration PB : EB ----* B. f "*:PA)specializes to be C * F. 3 presents T(kI) as a mapping cone T(B) Uw C(C * F). Iterated usage of ** gives the result stated in CS6.
