Accord ingly, we move primarily in the realm of smooth manifolds and use the de Rham theory as a prototype of all of. A manifold is a topological space for which every point has a neighborhood which is homeomorphic to a real topological vector space. A ringed space is a topological space which has for each open set, a ring, which behaves like a ring of functions.

The guiding principle in this book is to use differential forms as an aid in exploring some of the less digestible aspects of algebraic topology. Accord ingly, we move primarily in the realm of smooth manifolds and use the de Rham theory as a prototype of all of. This is a really basic book, that does much more than just topology and geometry: It starts off with linear algebra, spends a lot of time on differential equations and eventually gets to e.g. differential forms.

This work may be used as the text for a one-semester graduate or advanced undergraduate course, as well as by students engaged in self-study. Requiring only minimal undergraduate prerequisites, 'Introduction to Manifolds' is also an excellent foundation for Springer's 'Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology'.

Differential Algebraic Topology. This book presents some basic concepts and results from algebraic topology. Topics covered includes: Smooth manifolds revisited, Stratifolds, Stratifolds with boundary: c-stratifolds, The Mayer-Vietoris sequence and homology groups of spheres, Brouwer’s fixed point theorem, separation and invariance of dimension, Integral homology and the mapping degree, A.

“A book which covers such an interesting and important subject deserves some remarks on the style: On the back cover one can read “With its stress on concreteness, motivation, and readability, Differential forms in algebraic topology should be suitable for self-study.” This must not be misunderstood in the ense that it is always easy to 5/5(11).

For applications to homotopy theory we also discuss by way of analogy cohomology with arbitrary coefficients. "Bott and Tu give us an introduction to algebraic topology via differential forms, imbued with the spirit of a master who knew differential forms way back when, yet written from a mature point of Indeed they assume "an audience with prior exposure to algebraic or differential topology".

By using the de Rham theory of differential forms as a prototype of cohomology, the machineries of algebraic topology are made easier to assimilate. With its stress on concreteness, motivation, and readability, this book is equally suitable for self-study and as a /5(36).

“This book is an excellent presentation of algebraic topology via differential forms. The first chapter contains the de Rham theory, with stress on computability.

Thus, the Mayer-Vietoris technique plays an important role in the exposition.5/5(7).
