An Elementary Illustrated Introduction to Simplicial Sets
by Greg Friedman
Publisher: arXiv.org 2016
Number of pages: 58
This is an expository introduction to simplicial sets and simplicial homotopy theory with particular focus on relating the combinatorial aspects of the theory to their geometric/topological origins. It is intended to be accessible to students familiar with just the fundamentals of algebraic topology.

Surgery theory is the standard method for the classification of high-dimensional manifolds, where high means 5 or more. This book aims to be an entry point to surgery theory for a reader who already has some background in topology.

These notes provide a brief introduction to topological groups with a special emphasis on Pontryaginvan Kampen's duality theorem for locally compact abelian groups. We give a completely self-contained elementary proof of the theorem.

Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory investigates the homotopy types of manifolds, using a combination of algebra and topology. It is the aim of these notes to provide an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory.

This book provides a detailed treatment of algebraic topology both for teachers of the subject and for advanced graduate students in mathematics. Most chapters end with problems that further explore and refine the concepts presented.
