This book surveys the fundamental ideas of algebraic topology. The first part covers the fundamental group, its definition and application in the study of covering spaces. The second part turns to homology theory including cohomology, cup products, cohomology operations and topological manifolds. The final part is devoted to Homotropy theory, including basic facts about homotropy groups and applications to obstruction theory.

From Our Editors

The reader of this book is assumed to have a grasp of the elementary concepts of set theory, general topology, and algebra. Following are brief summaries of some concepts and results in these areas which are used in this book. Those listed explicitly are done so either because they may not be exactly standard or because they are of particular importance in the subsequent text.
