By Allan J. Sieradski

This article is an advent to topology and homotopy. subject matters are built-in right into a coherent complete and constructed slowly so scholars should not crushed. the 1st half the textual content treats the topology of entire metric areas, together with their hyperspaces of sequentially compact subspaces. the second one 1/2 the textual content develops the homotopy class. there are lots of examples and over 900 routines, representing a variety of trouble. This ebook may be of curiosity to undergraduates and researchers in arithmetic.

Automorphisms of Surfaces after Nielsen and Thurston

This publication, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a path given via Andrew Casson on the collage of Texas, is designed to function an advent to the functions of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. particularly 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 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 jewelry

Algebraic topology: homology and cohomology

This self-contained textual content is acceptable for complex undergraduate and graduate scholars and should be used both after or simultaneously with classes regularly topology and algebra. It surveys numerous algebraic invariants: the elemental crew, singular and Cech homology teams, and various cohomology teams.
