This publication will carry the sweetness and enjoyable of arithmetic to the study room. It bargains severe arithmetic in a full of life, reader-friendly type. integrated are routines and lots of figures illustrating the most suggestions.

The first bankruptcy offers the geometry and topology of surfaces. between different issues, the authors speak about the Poincaré-Hopf theorem on severe issues of vector fields on surfaces and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem at the relation among curvature and topology (the Euler characteristic). the second one bankruptcy addresses numerous points of the concept that of size, together with the Peano curve and the Poincaré method. additionally addressed is the constitution of third-dimensional manifolds. particularly, it truly is proved that the three-d sphere is the union of 2 doughnuts.

This is the 1st of 3 volumes originating from a sequence of lectures given through the authors at Kyoto college (Japan).

**Introduction to Topological Manifolds (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)**

This ebook is an creation to manifolds first and foremost graduate point, and available to any pupil who has accomplished a superb undergraduate measure in arithmetic. It includes the fundamental topological rules which are wanted for the extra research of manifolds, rather within the context of differential geometry, algebraic topology, and similar fields.

**Braids and Coverings: Selected Topics (London Mathematical Society Student Texts)**

This publication relies on a graduate path taught by way of the writer on the collage of Maryland. The lecture notes were revised and augmented via examples. the 1st chapters improve the hassle-free thought of Artin Braid teams, either geometrically and through homotopy thought, and talk about the hyperlink among knot concept and the combinatorics of braid teams via Markou's Theorem.
