Math 151a (Algebraic Topology)
Kiyoshi Igusa
Fall 2016

Updated: 07/02/16, 11pam
What is new: I started this webpage.


Math 151a: Topology I (introduction to algebraic topology). The objective is to learn the fundamental concept of algebraic topology: We associate groups to topological spaces and use these groups to obtain information about the space. The basic topics are: Text: Hatcher's book: Algebraic Topology. Prerequisites: Basic definitions for topological spaces, compact Hausdorff spaces, metric spaces, product topology. I recommend: M.A.Armstrong's Basic Topology.
