By James W. Vick (auth.)

The two decades because the ebook of this e-book were an period of continuous development and improvement within the box of algebraic topology. New generations of younger mathematicians were informed, and classical difficulties were solved, fairly in the course of the software of geometry and knot thought. various new assets for introductory coursework have seemed, yet there's power curiosity in an intuitive therapy of the fundamental rules. This moment variation has been elevated during the addition of a bankruptcy on overlaying areas. by way of research of the lifting challenge it introduces the funda­ psychological crew and explores its houses, together with Van Kampen's Theorem and the connection with the 1st homology crew. it's been inserted after the 3rd bankruptcy because it makes use of a few definitions and effects incorporated ahead of that time. even if, a lot of the fabric is at once obtainable from an analogous heritage as bankruptcy 1, so there will be a few flexibility in how those issues are built-in right into a direction. The Bibliography has been supplemented via the addition of chosen books and historic articles that experience seemed due to the fact 1973.

Fundamental Groups and Covering Spaces

The undemanding personality of basic teams and overlaying areas are awarded as appropriate for introducing algebraic topology. the 2 issues 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 corresponding to actual research, complicated variables, and differential geometry also are mentioned.

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

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

Conference on Algebraic Topology in Honor of Peter Hilton

This ebook, that is the court cases of a convention held at Memorial collage of Newfoundland, August 1983, comprises 18 papers in algebraic topology and homological algebra via collaborators and co-workers of Peter Hilton. it really is devoted to Hilton at the party of his sixtieth birthday. a few of the subject matters lined are homotopy thought, $H$-spaces, team cohomology, localization, classifying areas, and Eckmann-Hilton duality.

Example text

However, to get some understanding via analysis of vector bundles, it is necessary to introduce a generalized notion of function (reflecting the geometry of the vector bundle) to which we can apply the tools of analysis. , s maps a point in the base space into the fibre over that point. S(X, E) will denote the S-sections of E over X. , S(U, E) = S(U, E|U ) [we shall also occasionally use the common notation (X, E) for sections, provided that there is no confusion as to which category we are dealing with].

We note that Ur,n (R) → Gr,n (R) is a real-analytic (and hence also differentiable) R-vector bundle and that Ur,n (C) → Gr,n (C) is a holomorphic vector bundle. The reason for the name “universal bundle” will be made more apparent later in this section. 7: Let π: E → X be an S-bundle and U an open subset of X. Then the restriction of E to U , denoted by E|U is the S-bundle π|π −1 (U ) : π −1 (U ) −→ U. , πE : E → X and πF : F → X. , f commutes with the projections and is a K-linear mapping when restricted to fibres.

9: Let E −→X be an S-bundle. An S-submanifold F ⊂ E is said to be an S-subbundle of E if (a) F ∩ Ex is a vector subspace of Ex . , there exist local trivializations for E and F which are compatible as in the following diagram: E|U O i F |U ∼ / U × Kr O id × j ∼ / U × Ks, s ≤ r, where the map j is the natural inclusion mapping of K s as a subspace of K r and i is the inclusion of F in E. We shall frequently use the language of linear algebra in discussing homof morphisms of vector bundles. As an example, suppose that E −→F is a vector bundle homomorphism of K-vector bundles over a space X.
