Primary Instructor:

The goal of this course is to introduce the basic objects in algebraic topology:

  • fundamental groups and covering spaces,
  • singular homology and cohomology,
  • higher homotopy groups.

Time permitting, we will discuss more advanced topics, such as the Lefschetz fixed point theorem or Serre’s techniques for computing homotopy groups.

Course Requirements:

Previous exposure to point-set topology and familiarity with abstract algebra will be assumed.
