The Classification Theorem for Compact Surfaces
by Jean Gallier, Dianna Xu
Number of pages: 134
The topic of this book is the classification theorem for compact surfaces. We present the technical tools needed for proving rigorously the classification theorem, give a detailed proof using these tools, and also discuss the history of the theorem and its various "proofs".

A paper devoted to the study of iterated loop spaces. Our goal is to develop a simple and coherent theory which encompasses most of the known results about such spaces. We begin with some history and a description of the desiderata of such a theory.

This is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of stable commutator length, an important subfield of quantitative topology, with substantial connections to 2-manifolds, dynamics, geometric group theory, bounded cohomology, symplectic topology.

This is an introduction to simplicial sets and simplicial homotopy theory with a focus on the combinatorial aspects of the theory and their geometric/topological origins. Accessible to students familiar with the fundamentals of algebraic topology.
