    Intended for use both as a text and a reference, this book is an exposition of the fundamental ideas of algebraic topology. The first third of the book covers the fundamental group, its definition and its application in the study of covering spaces. The focus then turns to homology theory, including cohomology, cup products, cohomology operations, and topological manifolds.4/5(4).

In algebraic topology, one tries to attach algebraic invariants to spaces and to maps of spaces which allow us to use algebra, which is usually simpler, rather than geometry. (But, the underlying motivation is to solve geometric problems.) A simple example is the Missing: new book.

The best merit of the book is, first, it has only about pages, and second, the author introduces algebraic topology from the basic definitions of algebraic topology to characteristic classes. In Preface, he emphasized that to read this book, you don't need to have the experience to study topology.

He seemed confident about by: The more and more algebraic topology that I learn the more I continue to come back to Hatcher for motivation and examples.

This book is worth its weight in gold just for all the examples both throughout the text and in the exercises. Another reviewer has said it: "You will not regret buying this book"/5(52).

Usually dispatched within 3 to 5 business days. Intended for use both as a text and a reference, this book is an exposition of the fundamental ideas of algebraic topology.

The first third of the book covers the fundamental group, its definition and its application in the study of covering spaces. String topology is the study of algebraic and differential topological properties of spaces of paths and loops in manifolds.

Topics covered includes: Intersection theory in loop spaces, The cacti operad, String topology as field theory, A Morse theoretic viewpoint, Brane topology. Author(s): Ralph L. Cohen and Alexander A. Voronov. A downloadable textbook in algebraic topology. What's in the Book.

To get an idea you can look at the Table of Contents and the Preface. Printed Version: The book was published by Cambridge University Press in in both paperback and hardback editions, but only the paperback version is currently available (ISBN ).

I have tried very hard to keep the price of the paperback. The book has no homology theory, so it contains only one initial part of algebraic topology. BUT, another part of algebraic topology is in the new jointly authored book Nonabelian Algebraic Topology: filtered spaces, crossed complexes, cubical homotopy groupoids (NAT) published in by the European Mathematical Society.

Homology and cohomology were invented in (what's now called) the de Rham context, where cohomology classes are (classes of) differential forms and homology classes are (classes of) domains you can integrate them over.

This is a basic note in algebraic topology, it introduce the notion of fundamental groups, covering spaces, methods for computing fundamental groups using Seifert Van Kampen theorem and some applications such as the Brouwer’s fixed point theorem, Borsuk Ulam theorem, fundamental theorem of algebra.

Algebraic Topology. In most major universities one of the three or four basic first-year graduate mathematics courses is algebraic topology.

This introductory text is suitable for use in a course on the subject or for self-study, featuring broad coverage and a readable exposition, with many examples and exercises/5.

This book was written to be a readable introduction to algebraic topology with rather broad coverage of the subject. The viewpoint is quite classical in spirit, and new.

Notice that the new vertices are the barycenter of each ˙ iin Tand the center of each edge in T. The second derived subdivision, denoted T00, is (T0)0, the rst derived subdivision of T0, and so on.(See Figure ) Example 3.

Figure illustrates a nite simplicial complex and the second derived subdivision of it. 2-manifoldsMissing: new book. The book studies a variety of maps, which are continuous functions between spaces.

It also reveals the importance of algebraic topology in contemporary mathematics, theoretical physics, computer science, chemistry, economics, and the biological and medical sciences. You can write a book review and share your experiences.

Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them.

Building on rudimentary knowledge of real analysis, point-set topology, and basic algebra, Basic Algebraic Topology provides plenty of material for a two-semester course in algebraic topology.

The book first introduces the necessary fundamental concepts, such as relative homotopy, fibrations and cofibrations, category theory, cell complexes, and simplicial complexes.
