1. Mathematics 261: Algebraic Topology I
. This course is an introduction to algebraic topology.Mathematics 261 algebraic topology I (Spring 2003). Instructor. Bill Pardon.

Extractions: Bill Pardon This course is an introduction to algebraic topology. A rough outline is as follows: Homotopy Homology Algebraic topology studies topological spaces by associating to them algebraic invariants. The principal algebraic invariants considered in this course are the fundamental group (also known as the first homotopy group) and the homology groups. This course is a prerequisite for Math 262 (Algebraic Topology II). It is fundamental for students interested in research in Algebraic Geometry, Differential Geometry, Mathematical Physics, and Topology; it is also important for students in Algebra and in Number Theory. Basic algebra (Math 200 or 251) and Topology (Math 205), or consent from me.

2. HMC Math 177a -- Algebraic Topology
Math 177a Special Topics algebraic topology Text Munkres, Elements of algebraic topology. Doing the reading will be essential for success in this course.
http://www.math.hmc.edu/~su/math177a/

Extractions: Office Hours: WED 1-2:30pm. Course Content: This course is an introduction to algebraic and combinatorial topology, with an emphasis on simplicial and singular homology theory. A major theme in the course will be the connection between combinatorial and topological concepts. Topics will include simplicial complexes, simplicial and singular homology groups, exact sequences, chain maps, diagram chasing, Mayer-Vietoris sequences, Eilenberg-Steenrod axioms, Jordan curve theorem, and additional topics as time permits. This is standard first-year graduate material in pure mathematics. Text: Munkres, Elements of Algebraic Topology . Doing the reading will be essential for success in this course. Prerequisites: Analysis I (Math 131), Algebra I (Math 171), and Topology (Math 147, or topology summer readings), or the permission of the instructor. I will try to set up a few extra sessions to meet with those who did the summer readings. A note about the course: Expect this course to be challenging, but also quite rewarding, as you see the interplay between algebra, topology, combinatorics, and analysis. I will run this course more like a graduate course. As such, I will expect a certain level of mathematical maturity. This means that sometimes I will not prove simple statements in class; you may have to work out some details for yourself or by doing the reading. My focus will be on proving the larger theorems and providing perspective on the material.

Extractions: Algebraic topology is a branch of mathematics in which tools from abstract algebra are used to study topological spaces The goal is to take topological spaces, and further categorize or classify them. An older name for the subject was combinatorial topology , implying an emphasis on how a space X was contructed from simpler ones. The basic method now applied in algebraic topology is to investigate spaces via algebraic invariants: for example by mapping them to groups , which have a great deal of manageable structure, in a way that respects the relation of homeomorphism of spaces. Two major ways in which this can be done are through fundamental groups , or more general homotopy theory , and through homology and cohomology groups. The fundamental groups give us basic information about the structure of a topological space; but they are often nonabelian and can be difficult to work with. The fundamental group of a (finite) simplicial complex does have a finite presentation Homology and cohomology groups, on the other hand, are abelian, and in many important cases finitely generated. Finitely generated abelian groups can be completely classified and are particularly easy to work with.

Extractions: Algebraic topology revolves around to intimately interacting ingredients. These are: The idea of continuously deforming a topological space or, more precisely, deforming a continuous function between topological spaces; Invariants from algebra (groups, rings etc.) associated to a topological space, or a continuous map, which remain unchanged by such deformations. An informal overview Deformations are constrained by the disconnectivities in a space and the associated invariants from algebra constitute "measurements" of these disconnectivities. Let's describe this in some more detail Our E-Text on Algebraic Topology Literature on Algebraic Topology c1=" Frequently encountered examples of such invariants are: fundamental group, homotopy groups, homology groups, cohomology rings, Euler characteristic, various flavors of K-theory etc. " The collection of matrices with m rows and n columns " >

Bredon , Graduate Texts in Math., vol. 139, Springer-Verlag, Corrected 2nd Printing, 1995, ISBN 0-387-97926-3, and Algebraic Topology by Allen Hatcher, available free on the web , also published by Cambridge University Press in a paperback edition (ISBN 0-521-79540-0) at \$32. If you want still another reference that's not too expensive, I'd recommend A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology by J. Peter May , Chicago Lectures in Math., Univ. of Chicago Press, 1999, for \$20. It's rather terse but covers everything. Prerequisite: MATH 403 (undergraduate-level abstract algebra). MATH 730 or equivalent is recommended, not 100% necessary if you are willing to take a few facts about the fundamental group on faith. Catalog description: Basically, we will cover most of Chapters IV, V, and VI of Bredon, with some of the "starred sections" omitted. Much of this material is also in Hatcher, Ch. 2-3, with a slightly different point of view, and you might find a second presentation helpful.

Extractions: Next: Knot Theory (M24) Up: Geometry and Topology Previous: Reading course on the Cohomology of Coherent Sheaves I. Smith Algebraic topology permeates all of modern pure mathematics. This course will introduce several of the basic ideas of the subject, developing them with a slightly geometric flavour. It should however be of interest to people across a broad spectrum. The course will be divided into three (unequal) parts: Homology theory: (co)chain complexes, singular homology, computation methods and axioms. Products in cohomology, cohomology of manifolds. Homotopy theory: homotopy lifting, covering spaces and subgroups of the fundamental group. Higher homotopy groups, the homotopy exact sequence. Characteristic classes: vector bundles and classifying spaces. The Thom isomorphism theorem, the Euler class and applications. Background reading I shall assume that you are familiar with basic analytic topology (topological spaces, compactness, connectedness etc). You can find this material quite concisely in, for example, Introduction to metric and topological spaces by W. A. Sutherland. You should also be confident with linear algebra and quotient spaces, and prepared to look things up!

15. Algebraic Topology
algebraic topology. Michaelmas term, 16 lectures Topology is the abstract study of continuity the basic objects of study are metric

Extractions: Next: Number Fields Up: COURSES IN PART II(B) Previous: Riemann Surfaces Michaelmas term, 16 lectures Topology is the abstract study of continuity: the basic objects of study are metric and topological spaces, and the continuous maps between them. (This course will be concerned exclusively with metric spaces, which were encountered in IB Analysis.) One important difference between topology and algebra is that in constructing continuous maps one has vastly more freedom than in constructing algebraic homomorphisms; thus problems which involve proving the non -existence of continuous maps with particular properties (e.g. the problem of showing that and are not homeomorphic unless m n ) are hard to solve using purely topological methods. The technique that has proved most successful in tackling such problems is that of developing algebraic invariants , which assign to every topological space (in a suitable class) an algebraic structure such as a group or vector space, and to every continuous map a homomorphism of the appropriate kind. Thus questions of the non-existence of continuous maps are reduced to questions of non-existence of homomorphisms, which are easier to solve. Two particular algebraic invariants are studied in this course: the fundamental group, and the simplicial homology groups. Of these, the former is easier to define, but hard to calculate except in a few particular cases; the latter requires the erection of a considerable amount of machinery before it can even be defined, but one this is done it becomes relatively easy to calculate. The course concludes with a classic example of the application of simplicial homology: the classification of all compact 2-manifolds up to homeomorphism.

A Concise Course in algebraic topology (Chicago Lectures in Mathematics Series(Paper)). There is more to this book than just classical algebraic topology.
http://www.sciencesbookreview.com/A_Concise_Course_in_Algebraic_Topology_Chicago

Extractions: This tiny textbook is well organized with an incredible amount of information. If you manage to read this, you will have much machinery of algebraic topology at hand. But, this book is not for you if you know practically nothing about the subject (hence four stars). I believe this work should be understood to have compiled "what topologists should know about algebraic topology" in a minimum number of pages.

http://www.sciencesbookreview.com/Algebraic_Topology_0521795400.html

Extractions: This book is not just for topologists! If youre like me, then youve spent countless nights sans Hatchers book trying to figure out the fundamental group of a beer can. Look no further, the answers are here! Be sure to check out the vivid detail Hatcher brings to the Van Kampen theorem. Ive not actually read that part myself, as I do not trust german mathematics. Hatchers book is intended as one of the series that cover every aspect of the subject. Separate books on vector bundles and K-theory, and spectral sequences respectively, are to appear sometime in the future. Thus this one covers ordinary homology/cohomology and homotopy theory only. His writing style is helpful and user-friendly, not demanding extensive "mathematical maturity".

http://www.maths.lth.se/matematiklu/personal/jaak/Alg-Top.html

Extractions: Although algebraic topology can be considered, by and large, as a creation of the 20th century, it has a long pre-history. It is generally considered to have its roots in Euler's polyhedron theorem (1752). This is the relation \$\$ E+F=K+2\$\$ where \$E\$ is the number of vertices, \$K\$ the number of edges, and \$F\$ the number of faces. In the first half of this century many mathematicians defined homology for more and more extended classes of topological spaces. Thus, for instance singular homology was first defined by Lefschetz in 1933. Finally, in 1945, Eilenberg and Steenrod developed an axiomatic approach to homology. It turned out that within the class of all topological spaces the Eilenberg and Steenrod axioms uniquely characterize singular homology. A parallel development took place in homotopy. Thus, higher homotopy groups were defined by Hurewicz in 1935 and their properties were developed. In the 1950's several new concepts were invented such as cobordism and \$K\$-theory. The course will be based mainly on Greenberg and Harper's book quoted below.
