Book Description

A graduate-level textbook that presents basic topology from the perspective of category theory.

This graduate-level textbook on topology takes a unique approach: it reintroduces basic, point-set topology from a more modern, categorical perspective. Many graduate students are familiar with the ideas of point-set topology and they are ready to learn something new about them.

Teaching the subject using category theory - a contemporary branch of mathematics that provides a way to represent abstract concepts - both deepens students' understanding of elementary topology and lays a solid foundation for future work in advanced topics.

The book expertly guides students of topology through the important transition from undergraduate student with a solid background in analysis or point-set topology to graduate student preparing to work on contemporary problems in 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.

  • Topological Groups: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow (S. A. Morris)

    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.

  • Algebraic Topology (Allen Hatcher)

    This introductory text is suitable for use in a course on the subject or for self-study, featuring broad coverage and a readable exposition, with many examples and exercises. The four main chapters present the basics: fundamental group and covering spaces, homology and cohomology, higher homotopy groups, and homotopy theory generally.

  • Basic Category Theory (Tom Leinster)

    Assuming little mathematical background, this short introduction to Category Theory is ideal for beginning graduate students or advanced undergraduates learning category theory for the first time.

  • Categories, Types, and Structures (Andrea Asperti, et al)

    This book introduces Category Theory at a level appropriate for computer scientists and provides practical examples in the context of programming language design. It pursues the more complex mathematical semantics of data types and programs.

  • Categorical Homotopy Theory (Emily Riehl)

    This book develops abstract homotopy theory from the categorical perspective with a particular focus on examples. It helps consolidate and simplify one's understanding of derived functors, homotopy limits and colimits, and model categories, among others.

  • Higher Topos Theory (Jacob Lurie)

    This book presents the foundations of Higher Topos Theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes, and shows how existing theorems in algebraic topology can be reformulated and generalized in the theory's new language.
