Fundamental Groups and Covering Spaces

The effortless personality of basic teams and masking areas are awarded as appropriate for introducing algebraic topology. the 2 themes are taken care of in separate sections. the point of interest is at the use of algebraic invariants in topological difficulties. functions to different components of arithmetic akin to actual research, advanced variables, and differential geometry also are mentioned.

Nonabelian Algebraic Topology: Filtered Spaces, Crossed Complexes, Cubical Homotopy Groupoids

The most subject matter of this publication is that using filtered areas instead of simply topological areas permits the advance of simple algebraic topology when it comes to better homotopy groupoids; those algebraic constructions greater replicate the geometry of subdivision and composition than these typically in use.

Conference on Algebraic Topology in Honor of Peter Hilton

This ebook, that is the complaints of a convention held at Memorial college of Newfoundland, August 1983, includes 18 papers in algebraic topology and homological algebra through collaborators and colleagues of Peter Hilton. it's devoted to Hilton at the get together of his sixtieth birthday. many of the themes coated are homotopy conception, \$H\$-spaces, crew cohomology, localization, classifying areas, and Eckmann-Hilton duality.
