                 and links to additional web resources.

Prerequisite:   Point-set topology and modules over rings.

Textbook:       We will begin with graphs on oriented surfaces using notes of of Alexander Zvonkin 
(handout). For the main part of the course, I will be using the book  Elements of Algebraic Topology 
by James R. Munkres  (available online from you favorite bookseller) and the book Algebraic Topology} 
by Allen Hatcher as my primary references. The book by Hatcher is available on his 
Allen Hatcher website
and in book form from Cambridge Press.  I also encourage you to make use of library's extensive collection
of texts on algebraic topology.
