Download e-book for iPad: An Introduction to Algebraic Topology (Dover Books on by Andrew H. Wallace

By Andrew H. Wallace

This self-contained remedy of algebraic topology assumes just some wisdom of genuine numbers and actual research. the 1st 3 chapters specialize in the fundamentals of point-set topology, delivering historical past to scholars forthcoming the topic with out earlier wisdom. Readers already accustomed to point-set topology can continue on to bankruptcy four, which examines the basic staff in addition to homology teams and non-stop mapping, barycentric subdivision and excision, the homology series, and simplicial complexes.
Exercises shape an essential component of the textual content; they comprise theorems which are as worthwhile as a few of these whose proofs are given in complete. writer Andrew H. Wallace, Professor Emeritus on the college of Pennsylvania, concludes the textual content with a consultant to additional reading.
