Math 525 is an introduction to algebraic topology, a powerful tool for distinguishing and studying topological spaces by associating to them algebraic objects such as groups. In this semester, we'll cover the fundamental group, homology, and some basics of manifold topology. Basically, we'll cover Chapters 0-2 of the required text, which is You can download the full text for free here online, but you may want to actually buy it – it's around $40 and is an excellent resource.
