An Introduction to Algebraic Topology (Dover Books on by Andrew H. Wallace

Geometry Topology

By Andrew H. Wallace

This self-contained remedy of algebraic topology assumes just some wisdom of genuine numbers and actual research. the 1st 3 chapters specialize in the fundamentals of point-set topology, supplying history to scholars coming near near the topic with out prior wisdom. Readers already acquainted with point-set topology can continue on to bankruptcy four, which examines the basic workforce in addition to homology teams and non-stop mapping, barycentric subdivision and excision, the homology series, and simplicial complexes.
Exercises shape a vital part of the textual content; they contain theorems which are as beneficial as a few of these whose proofs are given in complete. writer Andrew H. Wallace, Professor Emeritus on the collage of Pennsylvania, concludes the textual content with a advisor to additional reading.

Elements of Topology

Topology is a huge topic with many branches extensively labeled as algebraic topology, point-set topology, and geometric topology. Point-set topology is the most language for a huge number of mathematical disciplines. Algebraic topology serves as a strong instrument for learning the issues in geometry and diverse different parts of arithmetic.

Lectures on Invariant Theory (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

The first objective of this 2003 publication is to provide a quick advent to the most rules of algebraic and geometric invariant thought. It assumes just a minimum heritage in algebraic geometry, algebra and illustration concept. subject matters lined contain the symbolic procedure for computation of invariants at the area of homogeneous types, the matter of finite-generatedness of the algebra of invariants, the idea of covariants and structures of specific and geometric quotients.

Minkowski Geometry (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Minkowski geometry is one of those non-Euclidean geometry in a finite variety of dimensions during which distance isn't really 'uniform' in all instructions. This e-book provides the 1st accomplished remedy of Minkowski geometry because the Forties. the writer starts by means of describing the basic metric houses and the topological homes of lifestyles of Minkowski house.

Elementary Topology: A Combinatorial and Algebraic Approach

Hassle-free Topology: A Combinatorial and Algebraic procedure specializes in the appliance of algebraic how you can topological suggestions and theorems. The booklet first elaborates on a few examples of surfaces and their classifications. Discussions specialize in combinatorial invariants of a floor, combinatorial equivalence, surfaces and their equations, topological surfaces, coordinates on a sphere and torus, and homes of the field and torus.
