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. According to the classical tradition, the structure theory of the locally compact abelian groups is built parallelly.

This is not an introductory textbook in algebraic topology, these notes attempt to give an 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.

Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of higher category theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes, and shows how existing theorems in algebraic topology can be reformulated and generalized in the theory's new language.

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.
