Course Description

Topics: This course is the first part of a graduate level sequence in topology. We will mainly deal with fundamental groups and homology. This will roughly cover Chapters 0--2 of Hatcher's textbook Algebraic Topology. A little bit knowledge on point-set topology (Ma 109A) and group theory (Ma 005A) will be assumed.


Policies
 

Grading:  There will be one take-home midterm and one take-home final, each counting 30% of the final grade. Homework will count 40% of the final grade.
