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:

- Algebra: Fundamental group, homology, chain complexes. (To each space we get these things.)
- Topology: Simple examples of topological spaces, mostly ``Delta complexes'', surfaces. (We use very simple geometric objects, such as Klein bottles, as examples of the new ideas.)
