Handbook of Algebraic Topology by I.M. James

By I.M. James

Algebraic topology (also often called homotopy conception) is a flourishing department of recent arithmetic. it's very a lot a global topic and this is often mirrored within the heritage of the 36 major specialists who've contributed to the guide. Written for the reader who already has a grounding within the topic, the quantity includes 27 expository surveys overlaying the main energetic parts of study. they supply the researcher with an updated assessment of this intriguing department of arithmetic

Papers on Topology: Analysis Situs and Its Five Supplements (History of Mathematics)

Comprises complete bookmarked desk of contents and numbered pages. this can be an development of a replica on hand throughout the Library Genesis undertaking. the actual Stillwell translation is dated July 31, 2009.

John Stillwell was once the recipient of the Chauvenet Prize for Mathematical Exposition in 2005. The papers during this booklet chronicle Henri Poincaré's trip in algebraic topology among 1892 and 1904, from his discovery of the basic staff to his formula of the Poincaré conjecture. For the 1st time in English translation, you could stick to each step (and occasional stumble) alongside the way in which, with assistance from translator John Stillwell's advent and editorial reviews. Now that the Poincaré conjecture has ultimately been proved, by way of Grigory Perelman, it sort of feels well timed to assemble the papers that shape the heritage to this well-known conjecture. Poincaré's papers are in truth the 1st draft of algebraic topology, introducing its major material (manifolds) and uncomplicated thoughts (homotopy and homology). All mathematicians attracted to topology and its background will get pleasure from this publication. This quantity is one in all an off-the-cuff series of works in the heritage of arithmetic sequence. Volumes during this subset, "Sources", are classical mathematical works that served as cornerstones for contemporary mathematical idea.

Tel Aviv topology conference: Rothenberg Festschrif, 1998

This quantity provides the lawsuits of the Tel Aviv overseas Topology convention held throughout the targeted Topology software at Tel Aviv collage. The booklet is devoted to Professor Mel Rothenberg at the celebration of his sixty fifth birthday. His contributions to topology are good known---from the early paintings on triangulations to varied papers on transformation teams and on geometric and analytic points of torsion thought.


Jetzt in der achten Auflage, behandelt dieses bewährte Lehrbuch die Aspekte der mengentheoretischen Topologie, die jeder Mathematikstudent in mittleren Semestern kennen sollte. "Das erklärte Ziel des Autors struggle es, von der mengentheoretischen Topologie in leicht faßlicher und anregender shape 'gerade so viel zu bringen, wie ein Mathematikstudent beherrschen sollte.

Then (A) and (B) hold, (A) The Hurewicz homomorphism hnX is split injectivefor all n if and only if X has the homotopy type of a product of Eilenberg-MacLane spaces. (B) Moreover hnX is split surjective for all n if and only if X has the homotopy type of a one point union of Moore spaces. Properties (A) and (B) form a further nice example of if 7r-duality. 17).
