Algebraic topology by Tom Dieck T.

By Tom Dieck T.

This publication is written as a textbook on algebraic topology. the 1st half covers the cloth for 2 introductory classes approximately homotopy and homology. the second one half offers extra complicated purposes and ideas (duality, attribute sessions, homotopy teams of spheres, bordism). the writer recommends beginning an introductory direction with homotopy thought. For this function, classical effects are awarded with new effortless proofs. on the other hand, you possibly can commence extra regularly with singular and axiomatic homology. extra chapters are dedicated to the geometry of manifolds, cellphone complexes and fibre bundles. a distinct function is the wealthy offer of approximately 500 routines and difficulties. a number of sections contain subject matters that have now not seemed ahead of in textbooks in addition to simplified proofs for a few vital effects. necessities are general aspect set topology (as recalled within the first chapter), hassle-free algebraic notions (modules, tensor product), and a few terminology from class conception. the purpose of the publication is to introduce complicated undergraduate and graduate (master's) scholars to simple instruments, ideas and result of algebraic topology. enough history fabric from geometry and algebra is integrated. A book of the eu Mathematical Society (EMS). dispensed in the Americas by means of the yank Mathematical Society.

A survey of the Hodge conjecture

This booklet offers an creation to a subject matter of critical curiosity in transcendental algebraic geometry: the Hodge conjecture. along with 15 lectures plus addenda and appendices, the quantity is predicated on a sequence of lectures brought via Professor Lewis on the Centre de Recherches Mathematiques (CRM).

Algebraic Functions And Projective Curves

This e-book offers an creation to algebraic services and projective curves. It covers quite a lot of fabric by way of shelling out with the equipment of algebraic geometry and continuing without delay through valuation idea to the most effects on functionality fields. It additionally develops the speculation of singular curves via learning maps to projective house, together with issues resembling Weierstrass issues in attribute p, and the Gorenstein kin for singularities of airplane curves.
