Tutorials by Anton Dochtermann: Fr 12.15-13.45, MA 642.


We cover some topics in algebraic topology: We start with the theory of covering spaces, which is closely related to the fundamental group of a space. We then develop singular homology and cohomology theory, including products and duality in manifolds. Finally we take a look at cohomological properties of fibre bundles, in particular vector bundles. We will build on the overview given in the topology class in the winter term, but also try to keep the dependence on it small.
