Semester | Spring Semester 2020 |

Lecturers | A. Sisto |

Periodicity | yearly recurring course |

Language of instruction | English |

Abstract | This is a continuation course to Algebraic Topology I. The course will cover more advanced topics in algebraic topology including: cohomology of spaces, operations in homology and cohomology, duality. |

Objective | |

Literature | 1) A. Hatcher, "Algebraic topology", Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2002. The book can be downloaded for free at: http://www.math.cornell.edu/~hatcher/AT/ATpage.html 2) G. Bredon, "Topology and geometry", Graduate Texts in Mathematics, 139. Springer-Verlag, 1997. 3) E. Spanier, "Algebraic topology", Springer-Verlag |

Prerequisites / Notice | General topology, linear algebra, singular homology of topological spaces (e.g. as taught in "Algebraic topology I"). Some knowledge of differential geometry and differential topology is useful but not absolutely necessary. |
