Whenever I feel that I am just grinding away at technical results, this is one of the books I return to tppology a little perspective. Share your thoughts with other customers. Most of the proofs until the last chapters are of the 1- or 2-paragraph variety, with some pictures added, although as the book progresses the level becomes increasingly more sophisticated.

Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. So why am I rating this 5 stars?

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? I feel uncomfortable with the proofs Hatcher gives. I have no doubt it will continue to undergo scrutiny in future ages.

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Otpology course, as it’s stated, this isn’t an exact science. Add all three to Cart Add all three to List. There is not one part of the book that is not helpful or interesting, and the author delves into many different areas that involve the use of topology.

Shall we then abandon all intuitive arguments? Explore the Home Gift Guide.

For the wealth of examples e. Topologt more Read less. This text gives the reason behind many advanced topological concepts and tantalizes the reader with it’s varied applications.

Also, Lagrange’s theorem is also immediate in your sense because quotienting a finite group by a subgroup is precisely the collapsing of its cosets to a point, so clearly the number of elements in the quotient is exactly the number of cosets. As long as it is backed by the gold standard of rigorous proofs,the paper money of gestures is an invaluable aid for quick communication and fast circulation of ideas.


I am taking a course in Algebraic Topology. Showing of 6 reviews. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Many topics are given such short attention it makes you wonder why the author even bothered – such as topollogy page devoted to Frechet spaces followed by a section consisting of a single paragraph on locally convex topological vector spaces. How much rigour is necessary? This is the most pleasurable text on general topology you are likely to find. Topology Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics.

Certainly this book couldn’t be used as a textbook for an undergraduate course – for the reasons mentioned above and also because not enough material is actually covered, as well as the obvious deficiency in that it lacks exercises for the reader. Topologh Edition Dover Books on Mathematics. I think you’ll notice most of Hatcher’s arguments would pass this test,even if it would probably take janih considerable jjanich of spade work to make them completely rigorous in the same sense as a real analysis or algebra proof.

Topology : K Janich :

The German mathematician Klaus Janich has a wonderful response topolkgy this question in his book on topology, which is intentionally very non-rigorous and intuitive: I imagine that I’ll be more slick and fast as I gain more experience, since I’ll know the patterns hopology arguments. For the same reason, intuitive arguments have I would even say crippled the speed at which I could otherwise read texts, which I understand is the opposite of what most people would say.

Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. There is indeed much that is wise in this quote and it really gives what I think is an excellent “rule of thumb” for determining when a “proof” in mathematics has crossed the line and really become non-rigorously vague by 21st century mathematical standards to the point is really proves nothing: Or a simple closed curve in a plane ‘clearly’ partitions it into two janch parts.

Some relevant remarks by Terry Tao. Or, closer to topology, I could say that collapsing the boundary of a closed disk to a point ‘clearly’ makes a sphere.

Unless you are taking something on faith on purpose, but I get the feeling that is not your intent here, but rather you want to understand the material. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

The author does a brilliant job of teaching the janjch the essential concepts of point set topology, and the book is very fun to read.

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. This has to rank as one of the best paragraphs that has every appeared in a mathematics book, for it nicely summarizes the need for developing a feel for the concepts behind mathematics before moving on to the rigorous proofs.

Basic topological concepts of janjch, closed, continuous, product topology, connectedness,compactness and intro to separation axioms is presented in a logical concise and easy to understand way.

Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Concepts are often used before they are defined, or are not defined precisely, which is liable to frustrate these students as well.

Topology : Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics

The question of what constitutes a proof has constantly been questioned and revised since the beginnings of mathematics in the Ancient World. The author has a knack for allowing readers to “see into the future” topolgoy what kind of mathematics is waiting for them and how topology janjch indispensable in its study. Half of the chapter on homotopy is actually concerned with categories and functors, probably not the best way to introduce the subject. Dignaga 2 5.
