Introduction to Topological Manifolds (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

This publication is an creation to manifolds at the start graduate point, and obtainable to any pupil who has accomplished an excellent undergraduate measure in arithmetic. It comprises the basic topological rules which are wanted for the additional research of manifolds, really within the context of differential geometry, algebraic topology, and similar fields.

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

This ebook is predicated on a graduate path taught through the writer on the college of Maryland. The lecture notes were revised and augmented through examples. the 1st chapters improve the effortless thought of Artin Braid teams, either geometrically and through homotopy concept, and talk about the hyperlink among knot thought and the combinatorics of braid teams via Markou's Theorem.

Example text

Consider the following subspace D ⊂ H D= u∈H σk+1 σk+1 : | |u| = 1, ǫj , u = 0, j = 1, . . , k . 12. Prove that D is homeomorphic to the hemisphere of the dimension σk+1 − k − 1. Thus D is a closed cell of dimension σk+1 −k −1. 2. We define the map f : E(σ1 , . . , σk ) × D −→ E(σ1 , . . , σk , σk+1 ) by the formula f ((v1 , . . , vk ), u) = (v1 , . . , vk , T u) where T is given by (13). We notice that vi , T u = T ǫi , T u = ǫi , u = 0, i = 1, . . , k, and T u, T u = u, u = 1 by definition of T and since T ∈ O(n).

We notice that it is enough to define a map (n) F1 : X ∪ ((A ∪ X (n) ∪ en+1 ) × I) −→ Y extending F (n) to a single cell en+1 . Let en+1 be a (n + 1)-cell such that en+1 ⊂ X \ A. 34 BORIS BOTVINNIK By induction, the map F (n) is already given on the cylinder (¯ en+1 \en+1 )×I since the boundary n+1 n+1 n+1 (n) n+1 (n+1) ∂e = e¯ \e ⊂ X . Let g : D −→ X be a characteristic map corresponding (n) n+1 to the cell e . We have to define an extension of F1 from the side g(S n ) × I and the bottom base g(Dn+1 ) × {0} to the cylinder g(Dn+1 ) × I .

11. 12. Let Y be n-connected CW -complex, and X be an n-dimensional CW complex. Then the set [X, Y ] consists of a single element. A pair of spaces (X, A) is n-connected if for any k ≤ n and any map of pairs f : (Dk , S k−1 ) −→ (X, A) homotopic to a map g : (Dk , S k−1 ) −→ (X, A) (as a map of pairs) so that g(Dk ) ⊂ A. 11. What does it mean geometrically that a pair (X, A) is 0-connected? 1connected? Give some alternative description. 12. Let (X, A) be an n-connected pair of CW -complexes. Prove that (X, A) is homotopy equivalent to a CW -pair (Y, B) so that B ⊂ Y (n) .
