New PDF release: An Introduction to Algebraic Topology (Dover Books on

By Andrew H. Wallace

This self-contained remedy of algebraic topology assumes just some wisdom of genuine numbers and genuine research. the 1st 3 chapters concentrate on the fundamentals of point-set topology, supplying history to scholars impending the topic with out earlier wisdom. Readers already conversant in point-set topology can continue on to bankruptcy four, which examines the elemental staff in addition to homology teams and non-stop mapping, barycentric subdivision and excision, the homology series, and simplicial complexes.
Exercises shape a vital part of the textual content; they comprise theorems which are as invaluable as a few of these whose proofs are given in complete. writer Andrew H. Wallace, Professor Emeritus on the collage of Pennsylvania, concludes the textual content with a consultant to extra reading.
