Description:
The basic notions in topology are varied and a comprehensive grounding in point-set topology, the definition and use of the fundamental group, and the beginnings of homology theory requires considerable time. The goal of this book is a focused introduction through these classical topics, aiming throughout at the classical result of the Invariance of Dimension. This text is based on the author's course given at Vassar College and is intended for advanced undergraduate students. It is suitable for a semester-long course on topology for students who have studied real analysis and linear algebra.

I introduce the concepts of funcoids which generalize proximity spaces and reloids which generalize uniform spaces. Funcoid is generalized concept of proximity, the concept of reloid is cleared from superfluous details concept of uniformity.

These notes are a supplement for the 'standard undergraduate course' in Analysis. The aim is to present a more general perspective on the incipient ideas of topology encountered when exploring the rigorous theorem-proof approach to Calculus.
