Fundamental Groups and Covering Spaces

The undemanding personality of basic teams and masking areas are awarded as appropriate for introducing algebraic topology. the 2 subject matters are handled in separate sections. the point of interest is at the use of algebraic invariants in topological difficulties. purposes to different components of arithmetic comparable to actual research, complicated variables, and differential geometry also are mentioned.

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

The most topic of this booklet 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 generally in use.

Conference on Algebraic Topology in Honor of Peter Hilton

This e-book, that is the court cases of a convention held at Memorial college of Newfoundland, August 1983, includes 18 papers in algebraic topology and homological algebra via collaborators and colleagues of Peter Hilton. it truly is devoted to Hilton at the get together of his sixtieth birthday. a few of the themes lined are homotopy conception, $H$-spaces, crew cohomology, localization, classifying areas, and Eckmann-Hilton duality.

As the abelian higher homotopy groups came to be accepted, a considerable amount of work in homotopy theory moved as far as possible from group theory and the nonabelian fundamental group, and the original concern about the abelian nature of the higher homotopy groups came to be seen as a quirk of history, an unwillingness to accept a basic fact of life. Indeed, Alexandrov and Finikov in their Obituary Notice ˇ ˇ for Cech, [AF61], referred to the unfortunate lack of appreciation of Cech’s work on higher homotopy groups, resulting from too much attention to the disadvantage of their abelian nature.
