The German mathematician Klaus Janich has a wonderful response to this question in his book on topology, which is intentionally very. Topology. Klaus Janich. This is an intellectually stimulating, informal presentation of those parts of point set topology that are of importance to the nonspecialist. Topology by Klaus Janich: Forward. Content. Sample.

Although the second part of klauw book dealing with Algebraic Topology is not as good as other specialized books in AT such as Hatcher’s book which is free to download on Hatcher’s site. It goes up to homotopy and homology. Email Required, but never shown. I imagine that I’ll be more slick and fast as I gain more experience, since I’ll know the patterns of arguments.

My answer was you should not change your tolology choise. It’s nice to get used to his writing style early. Or a simple closed curve in a plane ‘clearly’ partitions it into two disjoint parts.

I only looked at the first file in each batch, trusting that the translations work the same way. Of course, as it’s stated, this isn’t an janidh science.

I am an undergraduate student.

The exercises are extensive and very helpful. Essential Topology looks good, but not suitable for me. I’m assuming that the students are not familiar with point-set topology and it’s the first course in topology for them.


So I am thinking, maybe I should choose another book this time. There will be a great deal of precision and intuition all together. A wise choise because Kosniowski’s “A first course in algebraic topology” is an user-friendly book to learn basic definitions and theorems about general topology, homotopy theory and fundamental group.

In the past I have used two different books: I don’t have a printer attached now, so I can’t actually test this, but it looks perfectly ordinary. The students learn the concepts fast, their theoretical language to explicate honed, and their visualization skills improved.

Very much a point-set-topology-is-a-subject-in-its-own-right kind of outlook. It doesn’t do any algebraic topology, though. See my web page http: The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable. Another example is the proof?

You may also like. Of course every mathematician should verify a claim until he feels comfortable that if necessary, he could produce the real argument down to the atomic details. This book is excellent for visualization and at the same precise theoretical treatment of the subject.

It is better to read the question before giving an answer: Mathematics Hardcover Signed Books.

I am bound to recommend my book Topology and Groupoids, Ronald Brown, available from amazon. Post as a guest Name. It also doesn’t have enough theorems and proofs to immerse oneself in the new concepts.


Best Selling in Textbooks, Education See all. I should say janicb I chose the groupoid view in the first edition as it seemed to me more intuitive and more powerful. Crossley does not think that fundamental group could be the highest point in the course.

I like both of these books and my students hate both of them.

Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Topology by Klaus Jänich (1994, Hardcover)

Any Condition Any Condition. Dover Books on Mathematics: Topology Klaus Janich This book is excellent for visualization and at the same precise theoretical treatment of the subject.

Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. Kosniowski, A first course in algebraic topology; L.

I know it’s been a while and I entirely don’t expect an answer, but do you still hold this view? I am taking a course in Algebraic Topology.

It also defines the fundamental group, but doesn’t really do anything with it. But for students that have had a strong set theory or analysis course s beforehand, it’s a great book. But, should I be feeling uncomfortable?

An janixh is also available from www. Chapter are one of the best approaches to the topology I have ever seen. Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics:
