Description: There are two reasons why this may be a useful exercise. First, it may help to show K-theorists brought up in the \algebraic school how their subject is related to topology. And secondly, clarifying the relationship between K- theory and topology may help topologists to extract from the wide body of K-theoretic literature the things they need to know to solve geometric problems

Description: Algebraic K-theory is a branch of algebra dealing with linear algebra over a general ring A instead of over a eld.
Description: This book explains the following topics: the fundamental group, covering spaces, ordinary homology and cohomology in its singular, cellular, axiomatic, and represented versions, higher homotopy groups and the Hurewicz theorem, basic homotopy theory including fibrations and cofibrations, Poincare duality for manifolds and manifolds with boundary.
Description: We will follow a direct approach to differential topology and to many of its applications without requiring and exploiting the abstract machinery of algebraic topology. The course will cover immersion, submersions and embeddings of manifolds in Euclidean space (including the basic results by Sard and Whitney), a discussion of the Euler number and winding numbers, fixed point theorems, the Borsuk-Ulam theorem and respective applications. At the end of the cou...
