An Illustrated Introduction to Topology and Homotopy by Sasho Kalajdzievski

By Sasho Kalajdzievski

An Illustrated creation to Topology and Homotopy explores the great thing about topology and homotopy concept in an instantaneous and interesting demeanour whereas illustrating the ability of the idea via many, frequently miraculous, functions. This self-contained booklet takes a visible and rigorous procedure that includes either broad illustrations and entire proofs.

The first a part of the textual content covers easy 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. targeting homotopy, the second one half begins with the notions of ambient isotopy, homotopy, and the basic staff. The publication then covers easy combinatorial staff concept, 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 crew conception, together with quite a few subgroup theorems.

Requiring just some familiarity with team idea, the textual content encompasses a huge variety of figures in addition to a variety of examples that exhibit how the idea will be utilized. every one part starts off with short historic notes that hint the expansion of the topic and ends with a suite of routines.

Example text

Generalize: Let Xi be spaces, let Y be a set and let fi : Xi → Y , i ∈I , be mappings. Show that T = U ⊂ Y : for every i ∈I , fi −1 (U ) ⊂ Xi is a topology over Y. Show that the (Euclidean) metric space topology and the (usual) ordered topology over » are the same. Show that the order topology defined in Example 8 is indeed a topology. Let τ be the collection defined in Example 8, except that we do not require that X be in τ. Show that in that case τ is not necessarily a topology. 2 Some Basic Notions A brief historical note: Bernard Bolzano (1781–1848) proved Theorem 5 in the 1830s.

3); an explanation is provided in the paragraph that follows. Since we will prove (♦) in a more general setting, the reader may safely skip the rest of this example. 2 is less than the area of the larger shaded triangle. 2) Area (BEFG) ≤ Area(ABCDE). 1 Metric Spaces: Definition and Examples ◾ 19 the same formula holds for Area(ABCDE) when A, B, and C happen to be collinear (when we get a trapezoid). 3; only the side ED changes in size). Such rotation will only affect the area of the triangle BDE.

Theorem 4. A subset A of a space X is closed if and only if it contains all of its accumulation points. Proof. ⇒ Let A be a closed subset of X and suppose it does not contain an accumulation point x. Then x ∈ Ac , and so Ac is an open neighborhood of x that is disjoint from A. Hence x is not accumulation point for A, and we have a contradiction. ⇐ Suppose A contains all of its accumulation points and take a point x in Ac . Since x is not an accumulation point for A there is an open neighborhood of x that does not contain any points from A.
