Basic and classical properties of simplicial homology together with some applications are then presented. Finally, this text could also be of use for the expert from a teaching point of view.

The mathematical beginner, leectures an undergraduate, will find a very intuitive and geometrical, yet formal and rigorous, approach to homology theory. Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry and topology.

Matveev S.V. Lectures on Algebraic Topology

After the introduction of the degree of a self map on a manifold, and with the few tools developed lecturres that point, the author readily presents the homotopy classification of immersions of the circle mattveev the plane and the fundamental theorem of algebra, and shows that a vector filed on the 2-sphere has a singular point. The basics of homotopy theory are then presented in very brief terms.

Then, the author introduces cellular homology and highlights the computational properties of this approach. That is, the exercises and computability.

Rashevskii seminar on tensor and vector analysis with applications in geometry, mechanics and physics October 8, Lectures on Algebraic Topology At a first glance, this nice, short book is comparable to other brief texts of a similar vein. Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk, Papadopoulos, European Mathematical Society, Zurich,— It has the smallest known volume.

Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,16— This makes the book suitable for both classroom use and for independent study. 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.


Print Price 1 Label: After a careful reading, though, this short piece reveals many insights from which different readers may benefit. Others are included to fill gaps left on purpose either to complete proofs of stated theorems or to establish results needed to make the book self-contained. Chelyabinsk State University, Chelyabinsk, Russia. 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.

But, as mentioned above, all of this follows from a quick first look at the book under review.

Matematika, mekhanika, informatika, no. The chapter is completed with a compendium of the basic properties of covering spaces.

Tematicheskii sbornik nauchnykh trudov, Matverv politekhnicheskii institut, Chelyabinsk,79— Skip to main content. 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. A publication of the European Mathematical Society.

Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,9— Having said that, there are two more aspects of the text that should be remarked upon, as the author gives them special attention.

The numerous illustrations in the text also serve this purpose. Rosebrock, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge,— Distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society. Starting with the definition of the fundamental group, its computation is described via the Van Kampen theorem applied in different situations.

The author’s intention is to rely on the geometric approach by appealing to the reader’s own intuition to help understanding. In fact the whole book is scattered with many exercises of differing scales of difficulty and whose purposes vary. Citations in Algebraiv of Science: 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. It presents elements of both homology theory and homotopy theory, and includes various applications.


Author s Product display: This book provides an introduction to the basic concepts and methods of algebraic topology for the beginner.

Here follows an example of this: Matematika, mekhanika, informatika2 8— Melnikov, Chelyabinskii gosudarstvennyi universitet, Chelyabinsk,38— The theory of elementary moves on special polyhedra is elaborated.

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