This booklet develops a few of the striking richness, attractiveness, and gear of geometry in and 3 dimensions, and the powerful connection of geometry with topology. Hyperbolic geometry is the megastar. a robust attempt has been made to express not only denatured formal reasoning (definitions, theorems, and proofs), yet a residing feeling for the topic. there are various figures, examples, and routines of various trouble.

This quantity grew from a dialogue by way of the editors at the trouble of discovering strong thesis difficulties for graduate scholars in topology. even though at any given time we each one had our personal favourite difficulties, we stated the necessity to supply scholars a much broader choice from which to decide on a subject matter unusual to their pursuits.
This textbook in element set topology is aimed toward an upper-undergraduate viewers. Its light velocity may be necessary to scholars who're nonetheless studying to jot down proofs. must haves comprise calculus and no less than one semester of research, the place the scholar has been appropriately uncovered to the guidelines of easy set concept resembling subsets, unions, intersections, and capabilities, in addition to convergence and different topological notions within the genuine line.
