This ebook is predicated on a graduate direction taught via the writer on the college of Maryland. The lecture notes were revised and augmented via examples. the 1st chapters increase the common conception of Artin Braid teams, either geometrically and through homotopy thought, and speak about the hyperlink among knot thought and the combinatorics of braid teams via Markou's Theorem. the ultimate chapters provide a close research of polynomial overlaying maps, that could be seen as a homomorphism of the basic workforce of the bottom house into the Artin Braid workforce on n strings.

This ebook, the inaugural quantity within the college Lecture sequence, relies on lectures offered at Pennsylvania country collage in February 1987. The lectures try to provide a flavor of the accomplishments of manifold topology during the last 30 years. by way of the overdue Nineteen Fifties, algebra and topology had produced a winning and lovely fusion.

This self-contained remedy assumes just some wisdom of genuine numbers and actual research. the 1st 3 chapters concentrate on the fundamentals of point-set topology, and then the textual content proceeds to homology teams and non-stop mapping, barycentric subdivision, and simplicial complexes. routines shape a vital part of the textual content.

Lately, for fixing difficulties of algebraic topology and, particularly, tough difficulties of homotopy concept, algebraic buildings extra advanced than simply a topological monoid, an algebra, a coalgebra, and so on. , were used an increasing number of usually. A handy language for describing a number of buildings bobbing up evidently on topological areas and on their cohomology and homotopy teams is the language of operads and algebras over an operad.
