Read e-book online A Topological Aperitif (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics PDF

By Stephen Huggett,David Jordan

This is a publication of simple geometric topology, during which geometry, usually illustrated, publications calculation. The ebook begins with a wealth of examples, usually sophisticated, of the way to be mathematically yes no matter if gadgets are a similar from the perspective of topology.

After introducing surfaces, reminiscent of the Klein bottle, the booklet explores the houses of polyhedra drawn on those surfaces. extra sophisticated instruments are constructed in a bankruptcy on winding quantity, and an appendix supplies a glimpse of knot theory.

Numerous examples and routines make this an invaluable textbook for a primary undergraduate path in topology, delivering a company geometrical origin for extra research. for far of the ebook the must haves are mild, even though, so someone with interest and tenacity can be capable of benefit from the Aperitif.

"…distinguished via transparent and lovely exposition and encumbered with casual motivation, visible aids, cool (and fantastically rendered) pictures…This is a great booklet and that i suggest it very highly."
