Preface: Four ways to use this book -- Introduction: The enchanting world of topology -- Cardinality : to infinity and beyond -- Topological spaces : fundamentals -- Bases, subspaces, products : creating new spaces -- Separation properties : separating this from that -- Countable features of spaces : size restrictions -- Compactness : the next best thing to being finite -- Continuity : when nearby points stay together -- Connectedness : when things don't fall into pieces -- Metric spaces : getting some distance -- Transition from point-set topology to algebraic and geometric topology : similar strategies, different domains -- Classification of 2-manifolds : organizing surfaces -- Fundamental group : capturing holes -- Covering spaces : layering it on -- Manifolds, simplexes, complexes, and triangulability : building blocks -- Simplicial Z₂-homology : physical algebra -- Applications of Z₂-homology : a topological superhero -- Simplicial Z-homology : getting oriented -- Singular homology : abstracting objects to maps -- The end : a beginning-reflections on topology and learning.
