Geometric Topology This area of mathematics is about the assignment of geometric structures to topological spaces, so that they "look like" geometric spaces. For instance, compact two dimensional surfaces can have a local geometry based on the sphere (the sphere itself, and the projective plane), based on the Euclidean plane (the torus and the.

Geometric topology in dimensions 2 and 3. New York: Springer-Verlag, © (OCoLC) Material Type: Internet resource: Document Type: Book, Internet Resource: All Authors / Contributors: Edwin E Moise. This book, intended to be covered in one semester by math majors, provides a rigorous introduction to the basic notions of topology. The text culminates with two “capstone” chapters, discussing two classical applications of abstract topology: (1) the classification theorem of compact and connected surfaces; (2) homotopy and fundamental groups.

Subjects: Geometric Topology () This paper begins with a survey of some applications of Khovanov homology to low-dimensional topology, with an eye toward extending these results to $\mathfrak{sl}(n)$ homologies.

This book provides a self-contained introduction to the topology and geometry of surfaces and three-manifolds. The main goal is to describe Thurston's geometrisation of three-manifolds, proved by Perelman in The book is divided into three parts: the first is devoted to hyperbolic geometry, the second to surfaces, and the third to three-manifolds.

It contains complete proofs Cited by: Geometric Topology contains the proceedings of the Georgia Topology Conference, held at the University of Georgia on August The book is comprised of contributions from leading experts in the field of geometric contributions are grouped into four sections: low dimensional manifolds, topology of manifolds, shape theory.

Moise's "Geometric Topology in Dimensions 2 and 3" was somewhat of an anachronism even when it was first published incontaining no result from afterand with much of it dating from decades earlier.

Geometric Topology is a foundational component of modern mathematics, involving the study of spacial properties and invariants of familiar objects such as manifolds and complexes.

This volume, which is intended both as an introduction to the subject and as a wide ranging resouce for those already grounded in it, consists of 21 expository. Geometric topology is more motivated by objects it wants to prove theorems about. Geometric topology is very much motivated by low-dimensional phenomena -- and the very notion of low-dimensional phenomena being special is due to the existence of a big tool called the Whitney Trick, which allows one to readily convert certain problems in manifold theory into (sometimes.

$\begingroup$ This is a great book for those who want to get into the algebraic or geometric side of topology. The book is quite readable with many great illustrations. It is not as elementary as Munkres, but for a graduate student it would make a nice guide. I see that we've recently just created the tag geometric-topology.

Considering that the subject has its own arXiv subject code, I don't object to the tag's existence. But for me, geometric topology sort of lies in the fuzzy area between differential topology, differential geometry, and low dimensional topology.

The essentials of point-set topology, complete with motivation and numerous examples Topology: Point-Set and Geometric presents an introduction to topology that begins with the axiomatic definition of a topology on a set, rather than starting with metric spaces or the topology of subsets of Rn.

The geometric topology of 3-manifolds. [R H Bing] -- This book belongs in both graduate and undergraduate libraries as a useful reference for students and researchers in topology.

It is directed toward mathematicians interested in geometry who have had. Topology is a large subject with several branches, broadly categorized as algebraic topology, point-set topology, and geometric topology. Point-set topology is the main language Available Formats: eBook Hardcover.

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo-"earth", -metron "measurement") is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer.

Geometry arose independently in a number of early cultures as a practical way for dealing with. Geometric Topology Proceedings of the Geometric Topology Conference held at Park City, Utah, February 19–22, The aim of this book is to introduce the reader to an area of mathematics called geometric topology.

The text should be suitable to a master or PhD student in mathematics interested in geometry, and more generally to any curious mathematician with a standard background in topology and analysis. Geometric topology may roughly be described as the branch of the topology of manifolds which deals with questions of the existence of homeomorphisms.

Only in fairly recent years has this sort of topology achieved a sufficiently high development to be given a name, but its beginnings are easy to identify. This book covers competing risks and Pages:.
