About the course
Introduction to the algebraic invariants that distinguish topological spaces. Focuses on the fundamental group and its applications, and homology. Introduction to the basics of homological algebra.
This course introduces the algebraic invariants that distinguish topological spaces. The course will focus on the fundamental group and its applications and homology. Students will also learn the basics of homological algebra. Over the last few decades, algebraic topology has developed many applications to data science, materials science, and robotics. Whenever possible, connections to these emerging research fields will be discussed.
