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.
