not yet rated|write a review
This book aims to provide undergraduates with an understanding of geometric topology. Topics covered include a sampling from point-set, geometric, and algebraic topology. The presentation is pragmatic, avoiding the famous pedagogical method "whereby one begins with the general and proceeds to the particular only after the student is too confused to understand it." Exercises are an integral part of the text. Students taking the course should have some knowledge of linear algebra. An appendix provides a brief survey of the necessary background of group theory.
