The book begins with homology theory, which is introduced from the geometric approach of simplicial homology.

That is, the exercises and computability. Basic and classical properties of simplicial homology together with some applications are then presented. Chelyabinsk State University, Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Lectures on Algebraic Topology

Skip to main content. A publication of the European Mathematical Society. The numerous illustrations in the text also serve this purpose. The classical combinatorial difficulties to understanding simplicial homology a good example being the proof of the simplicial approximation theorem are overcome with a coherent, geometrical and logical exposition.

Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,38— The smooth and clear explanation at the beginning of the text of how the abstract algebrqic of categories and functors are going to be used later on, as well as the geometrical sketch of the proof of the uniqueness of homology theory on polyhedra and the introduction to lecyures homology for computational purposes, are good examples of this attempt to bring non-trivial concepts to beginners.

Lectures on Algebraic Topology Share this page. After the introduction of the degree of a self map on a manifold, and with the few tools developed at that point, the author readily presents the homotopy classification of immersions of the circle into the plane topoloyg the fundamental theorem of algebra, and shows that a vector filed on the 2-sphere has a singular point.


UrO RAN, 23no. Please switch it on to enable full functionality of the website. Then, the author introduces cellular homology and highlights the computational properties of this approach.

On one hand, some aspects algebbraic algebraic topology are presented in a not commonly used approach for instance, the computation of the fundamental group of the complement of some knots. Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams.

A very short introduction to higher homotopy groups and the action on them by the fundamental group is then followed by an equally extensive presentation of the long exact sequence of a fibre bundle. Others are included to fill gaps left matvesv purpose either to complete proofs of stated theorems or to establish results needed to make the book self-contained.

Lectures on Algebraic Topology.

The theory of elementary moves on special polyhedra is elaborated. Here follows an example of this: On the other hand, the use of the basics of simplicial homology theory to attain deep results on more geometrical environments are given in the same geometrical but rigorous language. Ordering on the AMS Bookstore is limited to individuals for personal use only. Rashevskii seminar on tensor and vector analysis with applications in geometry, mechanics and physics October 8, But, as mentioned above, all of this topolgy from a quick first look at the book under review.


Review: Lectures on Algebraic Topology | EMS

Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,9— The chapter also contains the Lefschetz fixed point theorem, a brief introduction to homology with coefficients, and a quick description of gopology elements of cohomology theory.

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry and topology. After a careful reading, though, this short piece reveals many insights from which different readers may benefit.

Two features make the text different from elctures standard literature: Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Topoogy,16— Papadopoulos, European Mathematical Society, Zurich,— It is proved that the restriction of the Zeeman conjecture onto special polyhedra is equivalent to the union of the Poincare conjecture and the Andrews—Curtis conjecture. Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk, This book provides an introduction to the basic concepts and methods of algebraic topology for the beginner.

For the graduate student, or the outsider to algebraic topology with some mathematical knowledge and with interests in other branches, this book is also of help. Citations in Web of Alvebraic Having said that, there are two more aspects of the text that should be remarked upon, as the author gives them special attention.
