Book Description
A graduatelevel textbook that presents basic topology from the perspective of category theory.
This graduatelevel textbook on topology takes a unique approach: it reintroduces basic, pointset topology from a more modern, categorical perspective. Many graduate students are familiar with the ideas of pointset 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 pointset topology to graduate student preparing to work on contemporary problems in mathematics.
