Topology has ratings and 24 reviews. Santaraksita said: Overrated and outdated. Truth be told, this is more of an advanced analysis book than a Topol. Topological Spaces and Continuous Functions. Chapter 3. Connectedness and Compactness. Chapter 4. Countability and Separation Axioms. Chapter 5. James Raymond Munkres (born August 18, ) is a Professor Emeritus of mathematics at MIT and the author of several texts in the area of topology, including.

It is an example of text book for self-study. Motivates students to continue into more challenging areas. Topological Spaces Section The Smirnov Metrization Theorem. Erfan Salavati rated it it was amazing May 05, Pointwise and Compact Convergence. Covering Spaces Section Comple This introduction to topology provides separate, in-depth coverage of both general topology and algebraic topology. I take one month to finish it after my advanced Calculus class but still learn a lot from the book.

What follows is a wealth of applications—to the topology of the plane including the Jordan curve theoremto the classification of compact surfaces, and to the classification of covering spaces. Topological Groups Chapter 3 Section The Order Topology Section Two separate, distinct sections one on general, point set topology, the other on algebraic topology are each suitable for a one-semester course and are based around the same set of basic, core topics.


Jared rated it liked it Jun 05, Delightfully clear exposition and rigorous proofs. Fundamental Concepts Section 2: However, one new er to the concepts of algebraic and general topology will probably find this book After making my way through Dover’s excellent Algebraic Topology and Combinatorial Topology sadly out of printI was recommended this on account of its ‘clean, accessible’ 1 layout, and its wise choice of ‘not completely dedicating itself to the Jordan curve theorem’.

If You’re a Student Additional order info. Countability and Separation Axioms. Mar 19, Dan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Not too keen about how countability axioms were j.r.mubkres e. Greatly expanded, full-semester coverage of algebraic topology —Extensive treatment of the fundamental group and covering spaces.

Topological Spaces and Continuous Functions. The introduction chapter is also exceptional. Includes many examples and figures.

If You’re an Educator Additional order info. Compact Subspaces of the Real Line.

Topology by James R. Munkres

I must admit, I have not read all j.r.munmres the first part of the book, but Munkres certainly makes it easier for a beginner to accept and understand the seemingly over-abstract definitions involved in point-set topology.

Want to Read saving…. Compact Subspaces of the Real Line Section Deepen students’ understanding of j.rr.munkres and theorems just otpology rather than simply test comprehension. The text can also be used where algebraic topology is studied only briefly at the end of a single-semester course.


The Tietze Extension Theorem. The CMU professor in charge of our summer program. Among the best mathematical texts I’ve ever read Table of Contents I.

See 1 question about Topology…. Direct Sums of Abelian Groups. If only all texts were this clear. Well-Ordering J.r.munkrrs 2 Section Basis for a Topology.

Order of topics proceeds naturally from the familiar to the unfamiliar —Begins with the familiar set theory, moves on to a thorough and careful treatment of topological spaces, then explores connectedness and compactness with their many ties to calculus and analysisand then branches out to the new and different topics mentioned above.

Dec 26, Ronald Lett rated it liked it Recommends it for: Want to Read Currently Reading Read. If this is your first exposure to topology, I would recommend Kinsey’s “Topology of Surfaces” as a companion of solid applications in the specific case of compact 2-dimensional topology.

No trivia or j.r.munkes yet.

The supplementary exercises can be used by students as a foundation for an independent research project or paper.
