This is not an introductory textbook in algebraic topology, these notes attempt to give a quick overview of the parts of algebraic topology, and in particular homotopy theory, which are needed in order to appreciate that side of motivic homotopy theory.

These notes are a supplement to a first year graduate course in manifold theory. These are the topics covered: Manifolds (Smooth Manifolds, Projective Space, Matrix Spaces); Basic Tensor Analysis; Basic Cohomology Theory; Characteristic Classes.

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.

The author discusses several exciting topological developments which radically changed the way we think about many issues. Topics covered: Poincare duality, Thom isomorphism, Euler, Chern and Pontryagin classes, cobordisms groups, signature formula.

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.
