Combinatorial Topology by P. S. Alexandrov Clearly written, well-organized, 3-part text begins by dealing with certain classic problems without using the formal techniques of homology theory and advances to the central concept, the Betti groups. Numerous detailed examples.
Introduction to Topology: Second Edition by Theodore W. Gamelin, Robert Everist Greene This text explains nontrivial applications of metric space topology to analysis. Covers metric space, point-set topology, and algebraic topology. Includes exercises, selected answers, and 51 illustrations. 1983 edition.
General Topology by Waclaw Sierpinski Detailed theory of Fréchet (V) spaces and a comprehensive examination of their relevance to topological spaces, plus in-depth discussions of metric and complete spaces. For beginning students and mature mathematicians. Second edition.
Topological Graph Theory by Jonathan L. Gross, Thomas W. Tucker Introductory treatment emphasizes graph imbedding but also covers connections between topological graph theory and other areas of mathematics. Discusses role of voltage graphs, Ringel-Youngs theorem, genus of a group, more. 1987 edition.
Topology by John G. Hocking, Gail S. Young Superb one-year course in classical topology. Topological spaces and functions, point-set topology, much more. Examples and problems. Bibliography. Index.
A Combinatorial Introduction to Topology by Michael Henle Excellent text covers vector fields, plane homology and the Jordan Curve Theorem, surfaces, homology of complexes, more. Problems and exercises. Some knowledge of differential equations and multivariate calculus required.Bibliography. 1979 edition.
Cohomology Operations and Applications in Homotopy Theory by Robert E. Mosher, Martin C. Tangora This treatment explores the single most important variety of cohomology operations, the Steenrod squares. It constructs these operations, proves their major properties, and provides numerous applications. 1968 edition.
Point Set Topology by Steven A. Gaal Suitable for a complete course in topology, this text also functions as a self-contained treatment for independent study. Additional enrichment materials make it equally valuable as a reference. 1964 edition.
Topology and Geometry for Physicists by Charles Nash, Siddhartha Sen Written by physicists for physics students, this text assumes no detailed background in topology or geometry. Topics include differential forms, homotopy, homology, cohomology, fiber bundles, connection and covariant derivatives, and Morse theory. 1983 edition.
Topology of 3-Manifolds and Related Topics by M.K. Fort, Jr., Prof. Daniel S. Silver Summaries and full reports from a 1961 conference discuss decompositions and subsets of 3-space; n-manifolds; knot theory; the Poincaré conjecture; and periodic maps and isotopies. Familiarity with algebraic topology required. 1962 edition.
Undergraduate Topology by Robert H. Kasriel This introductory treatment is essentially self-contained and features explanations and proofs that relate to every practical aspect of point set topology. Hundreds of exercises appear throughout the text. 1971 edition.
Introduction to Knot Theory by Richard H. Crowell, Ralph H. Fox Appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this text by two renowned mathematicians was hailed by the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society as "a very welcome addition to the mathematical literature." 1963 edition.
Introduction to Topology: Third Edition by Bert Mendelson Concise undergraduate introduction to fundamentals of topology — clearly and engagingly written, and filled with stimulating, imaginative exercises. Topics include set theory, metric and topological spaces, connectedness, and compactness. 1975 edition.
Over 140 examples, preceded by a succinct exposition of general topology and basic terminology. Each example treated as a whole. Over 25 Venn diagrams and charts summarize properties of the examples, while discussions of general methods of construction and change give readers insight into constructing counterexamples. Includes problems and exercises, correlated with examples. Bibliography. 1978 edition.
