Topology continues to be a topic of prime importance in contemporary mathematics, but until the publication of this book there were few if any introductions to topology for undergraduates. This book remedied that need by offering a carefully thought-out, graduated approach to point set topology at the undergraduate level. To make the book as accessible as possible, the author approaches topology from a geometric and axiomatic standpoint; geometric, because most students come to the subject with a good deal of geometry behind them, enabling them to use their geometric intuition; axiomatic, because it parallels the student's experience with modern algebra, and keeps the book in harmony with current trends in mathematics. After a discussion of such preliminary topics as the algebra of sets, Euler-Venn diagrams and infinite sets, the author takes up basic definitions and theorems regarding topological spaces (Chapter 1). The second chapter deals with continuous functions (mappings) and homeomorphisms, followed by two chapters on special types of topological spaces (varieties of compactness and varieties of connectedness). Chapter 5 covers metric spaces. Since basic point set topology serves as a foundation not only for functional analysis but also for more advanced work in point set topology and algebraic topology, the author has included topics aimed at students with interests other than analysis. Moreover, Dr. Baum has supplied quite detailed proofs in the beginning to help students approaching this type of axiomatic mathematics for the first time. Similarly, in the first part of the book problems are elementary, but they become progressively more difficult toward the end of the book. References have been supplied to suggest further reading to the interested student.

Students must prove all of the theorems in this undergraduate-level text, which features extensive outlines to assist in study and comprehension. Thorough and well-written, the treatment provides sufficient material for a one-year undergraduate course. The logical presentation anticipates students' questions, and complete definitions and expositions of topics relate new concepts to previously discussed subjects. Most of the material focuses on point-set topology with the exception of the last chapter. Topics include sets and functions, infinite sets and transfinite numbers, topological spaces and basic concepts, product spaces, connectivity, and compactness. Additional subjects include separation axioms, complete spaces, and homotopy and the fundamental group. Numerous hints and figures illuminate the text.

Author Serge Lang defines algebraic geometry as the study of systems of algebraic equations in several variables and of the structure that one can give to the solutions of such equations. The study can be carried out in four ways: analytical, topological, algebraico-geometric, and arithmetic. This volume offers a rapid, concise, and self-contained introductory approach to the algebraic aspects of the third method, the algebraico-geometric. The treatment assumes only familiarity with elementary algebra up to the level of Galois theory. Starting with an opening chapter on the general theory of places, the author advances to examinations of algebraic varieties, the absolute theory of varieties, and products, projections, and correspondences. Subsequent chapters explore normal varieties, divisors and linear systems, differential forms, the theory of simple points, and algebraic groups, concluding with a focus on the Riemann-Roch theorem. All the theorems of a general nature related to the foundations of the theory of algebraic groups are featured.

Throughout this text, a sustained geometric development functions as a single thread of reasoning that unifies the topological course.

"Admirably meets the topology requirements for the pregraduate training of research mathematicians."--American Mathematical Monthly Crucial to modern mathematics, topology is equally essential to many other disciplines, from quantum mechanics to sociology. This stimulating introduction employs the language of point set topology to define and discuss topological groups. The text examines set-theoretic topology and its applications in function spaces, as well as homotopy and the fundamental group. This new theoretical knowledge is applied to concrete problems, such as the calculation of the fundamental group of the circle and a proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra. The abstract development concludes with the classification of topological groups by equivalence under local isomorphism. Throughout this text, a sustained geometric development functions as a single thread of reasoning that unifies the topological course. Well-chosen exercises, along with a selection of problems in each chapter that contain interesting applications and further theory, help solidify students' working knowledge of topology and its applications.

Hailed by the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society as "a very welcome addition to the mathematical literature," this text is appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Written by two internationally renowned mathematicians, its accessible treatment requires no previous knowledge of algebraic topology. Starting with basic definitions of knots and knot types, the text proceeds to examinations of fundamental and free groups. A survey of the historic foundation for the notion of group presentation is followed by a careful proof of the theorem of Tietze and several examples of its use. Subsequent chapters explore the calculation of fundamental groups, the presentation of a knot group, the free calculus and the elementary ideals, and the knot polynomials and their characteristic properties. The text concludes with three helpful appendixes and a guide to the literature.
