Then, the author introduces cellular homology and highlights the computational properties of this approach. This book provides an introduction to the basic concepts and methods of algebraic topology for the beginner.

Publication Month and Year: The chapter is completed with a compendium of the basic properties of covering spaces.

But, as mentioned above, all of this follows from a quick first look at the book under review. Author s Product display: Skip to main content. In fact the whole book is scattered with many exercises of differing scales of difficulty and whose purposes vary. The numerous illustrations in the text also serve this purpose. matvesv

Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,38— UrO RAN, topologtno. Papadopoulos, European Mathematical Society, Zurich,— This makes the book suitable for both classroom use and for independent study.

The author’s intention is to rely on the geometric approach by appealing to the reader’s own intuition to help understanding.

Chelyabinsk State University, Chelyabinsk, Russia. Some of them are provided lecutres encourage and puzzle the independent reader as well as to make them evaluate their knowledge. The theory of elementary moves on special polyhedra is elaborated. Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams. JavaScript is disabled in your browser.


After a careful reading, though, this short piece reveals many insights from which different readers may benefit. Matematika, mekhanika, informatika2 8— Lecturs, mekhanika, informatika, no. Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,16— Second, the book contains many exercises, all of which are supplied with hints or solutions.

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

Tematicheskii sbornik nauchnykh trudovonn, Chelyabinskii politekhnicheskii institut, Chelyabinsk,79— I am sure that any experienced mathematician could find here new ways and tips, at least of an expository nature, of presenting these classical topics in the classroom.

Review: Lectures on Algebraic Topology | EMS

Basic and classical properties of simplicial homology together with some applications are then presented. Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk, 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 and the fundamental theorem of algebra, and shows that a vector filed on the 2-sphere has a singular point.

At a first glance, this nice, short book is comparable to other brief texts of a similar vein. It has the smallest known volume. 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.

The chapter also contains the Lefschetz fixed point theorem, a brief introduction to homology with coefficients, and a quick description of some elements of cohomology theory. Here follows an example of this:. It presents elements of both homology theory and homotopy theory, and includes various applications.

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. A publication of the European Mathematical Society. It is an important branch of modern mathematics with a wide degree of applicability to other fields, including geometric topology, differential geometry, functional analysis, differential equations, algebraic geometry, number theory, and theoretical physics.
