 A book is written, based on this lectures (PDF, 4.5 Mb, to appear in Independent
University of Moscow press). Its annotation:
A beginner's course of topology,
suitable for a firstyear student.
The author covers metric geometry (completions, compactness,
HeineBorel and HopfRinow theorem), pointset topology
(up to Tychonoff theorem, Stone's representation theorem
for Boolean algebras, and Urysohn's metrization theorem),
some category theory is included. The setup is very basic
(set theory is explained from the beginnings and up to
Axiom of Choice and its applications). The book ends with
an introduction to homotopy theory; Galois coverings,
fundamental group, NielsenSchreier theorem and
Seifertvan Kampen theorem. There ara two expositions
(of equal length) going in parallel, one purely
lecturebased, another a problem based course,
suitable for a more advanced student; in the
second part, all theorems are split into series
of problems for the student to solve.
