By V.G. Boltyanskii,V.A. Efremovich,J. Stillwell,A. Shenitzer

Topology is a comparatively younger and intensely very important department of arithmetic, which stories the houses of gadgets which are preserved via deformations, twistings, and stretchings. This booklet bargains with the topology of curves and surfaces in addition to with the basic strategies of homotopy and homology, and does this in a full of life and well-motivated approach. This ebook is definitely fitted to readers who're drawn to checking out what topology is all about.

In response to a chain of lectures for grownup scholars, this energetic and interesting e-book proves that, faraway from being a dusty, boring topic, geometry is actually filled with good looks and fascination. The author's infectious enthusiasm is placed to take advantage of in explaining a number of the key techniques within the box, beginning with the Golden quantity and taking the reader on a geometric trip through Shapes and Solids, throughout the Fourth measurement, winding up with Einstein's Theories of Relativity.

Get Non-Hausdorff Topology and Domain Theory (New Mathematical PDF

This designated publication on smooth topology seems well past conventional treatises and explores areas which can, yet needn't, be Hausdorff. this can be crucial for area concept, the cornerstone of semantics of machine languages, the place the Scott topology is sort of by no means Hausdorff. For the 1st time in one quantity, this e-book covers simple fabric on metric and topological areas, complicated fabric on entire partial orders, Stone duality, solid compactness, quasi-metric areas and lots more and plenty extra.
