An Illustrated creation to Topology and Homotopy explores the great thing about topology and homotopy idea in a right away and fascinating demeanour whereas illustrating the ability of the idea via many, frequently miraculous, functions. This self-contained publication takes a visible and rigorous strategy that comes with either vast illustrations and entire proofs.
The first a part of the textual content covers simple topology, starting from metric areas and the axioms of topology via subspaces, product areas, connectedness, compactness, and separation axioms to Urysohn’s lemma, Tietze’s theorems, and Stone-Čech compactification. concentrating on homotopy, the second one half starts off with the notions of ambient isotopy, homotopy, and the elemental workforce. The e-book then covers simple combinatorial team idea, the Seifert-van Kampen theorem, knots, and low-dimensional manifolds. The final 3 chapters talk about the idea of masking areas, the Borsuk-Ulam theorem, and functions in staff concept, together with quite a few subgroup theorems.
Requiring just some familiarity with crew concept, the textual content features a huge variety of figures in addition to numerous examples that convey how the speculation should be utilized. each one part begins with short old notes that hint the expansion of the topic and ends with a collection of routines.
