This quantity grew from a dialogue through the editors at the trouble of discovering solid 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 provide scholars a much broader choice from which to decide on a subject bizarre to their pursuits. one among us remarked, `Wouldn't or not it's great to have a booklet of present unsolved difficulties continually on hand to drag down from the shelf?' the opposite answered `Why don't we easily produce the sort of book?' years later and never so easily, this is the ensuing quantity. The cause is to supply not just a resource booklet for thesis-level difficulties but additionally a problem to the easiest researchers within the box.

Lectures on Algebraic Topology (Classics in Mathematics) by Albrecht Dold PDF

Springer is reissuing a particular few hugely winning books in a brand new, low-cost softcover version to lead them to simply obtainable to more youthful generations of scholars and researchers. Springer-Verlag all started publishing books in larger arithmetic in 1920. it is a reprint of the second one Edition.

This is a publication ordinarily approximately singular (co)homology. so as to do calculations on extra advanced items, CW complexes are brought. The booklet concentrates on items and manifolds. it really is aimed toward a graduate point viewers and in that context it truly is self contained. Homological algebra is built as much as the extent wanted within the textual content. there's a reasonable volume of examples and workouts.

Topological Properties of Spaces of Continuous Functions by Robert A. McCoy PDF

This e-book brings jointly right into a basic atmosphere a number of strategies within the learn of the topological houses of areas of constant services. the 2 significant sessions of functionality house topologies studied are the set-open topologies and the uniform topologies. the place applicable, the analogous theorems for the 2 significant periods of topologies are studied jointly, in order that a comparability should be made.

I think the answer is yes. This belief stems from Watson [1982] where an intimate relation between the two existence problems was shown. The only thing that is missing is the possibility that there might be a model in which normal first countable spaces are ℵ1 -collectionwise Hausdorff and yet that in that model there is a normal first countable space which fails to be ℵ2 -collectionwise Hausdorff. This seems unlikely, though it is open, and yet the question might be answered positively in any case (see Shelah [1977]).
