Book Description

In 1900, David Hilbert asked whether each locally euclidean Topological Group admits a Lie group structure. This was the fifth of his famous 23 questions which foreshadowed much of the mathematical creativity of the twentieth century.

It required half a century of effort by several generations of eminent mathematicians until it was settled in the affirmative. These efforts resulted over time in the Peter-Weyl Theorem, the Pontryagin-van Kampen Duality Theorem for locally compact abelian groups, and finally the solution of Hilbert 5 and the structure theory of locally compact groups, through the combined work of Andrew Gleason, Kenkichi Iwasawa, Deane Montgomery, and Leon Zippin.

For a presentation of Hilbert 5 see the 2014 book "Hilbert's Fifth Problem and Related Topics" by the winner of a 2006 Fields Medal and 2014 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics, Terence Tao.

  • Introduction to Topology (Bert Mendelson, et al.)

    This concise book offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology. The book's principal aim is to provide a simple, thorough survey of elementary topics in the study of collections of objects, or sets, that possess a mathematical structure.

  • Elementary Topology: Problem Textbook (O.Ya.Viro, et al.)

    This textbook on elementary topology contains a detailed introduction to general topology and an introduction to algebraic topology via its most classical and elementary segment centered at the notions of fundamental group and covering space.

  • Topology for the Working Mathematician (Michael Muger)

    Topology is a branch of pure mathematics that deals with the abstract relationships found in geometry and analysis. Written with the mathematician, this book provides a user-friendly, clear, and concise introduction to this fascinating area of mathematics.

  • Topology without Tears (Sidney A. Morris)

    General topology is the branch of topology dealing with the basic set-theoretic definitions and constructions used in topology. The aim of this is to provide a thorough grouding of general topology. It offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology.

  • Real Variables with Basic Metric Space Topology (Robert B. Ash)

    Designed for a first course in real variables, this text presents the fundamentals for more advanced mathematical work, particularly in the areas of complex variables, measure theory, differential equations, functional analysis, and probability.

  • Introduction to Topology (Renzo Cavalieri)

    This introductory topology book requires only a knowledge of calculus and a general familiarity with set theory and logic. Clear organization, worked examples, and concise writing style support a thorough understanding of basic topological principles.

  • Topology Lecture Notes (Ali Sait Demir)

    This lecture notes lead readers through a number of nontrivial applications of metric space topology to analysis, clearly establishing the relevance of topology to analysis. Covers metric space, point-set topology, and algebraic topology, etc.

  • General Topology (Pete L. Clark)

    This is an oustanding book on introductory topology (point set topology). The book is short. However, it is solid and complete and the proofs presented by the author are surprisingly optimised: very concise but always clear.

  • Simplicial and Dendroidal Homotopy Theory (Gijs Heuts, et al)

    This open access book offers a self-contained introduction to the Homotopy Theory of simplicial and dendroidal sets and spaces. These are essential for the study of categories, operads, and algebraic structure up to coherent homotopy.

  • Manifolds - Current Research Areas (Paul Bracken)

    This book cover a number of subjects which will be of interest to workers in these areas. It is hoped that the papers here will be able to provide a useful resource for researchers with regard to current fields of research in this important area.

  • Quasi-projective Moduli for Polarized Manifolds (Eckart Viehweg)

    This book discusses two subjects of quite different nature: Construction methods for quotients of quasi-projective schemes by group actions or by equivalence relations and properties of direct images of certain sheaves under smooth morphisms.
