Introduction a la Topologie

Ce cours de topologie a été dispensé en licence à l'Université de Rennes 1 de 1999 à 2002. Toutes les buildings permettant de parler de limite et de continuité sont d'abord dégagées, puis l'utilité de los angeles compacité pour ramener des problèmes de complexité infinie à l'étude d'un nombre fini de cas est explicitée.

Spaces of Constant Curvature

This e-book is the 6th version of the vintage areas of continuous Curvature, first released in 1967, with the former (fifth) variation released in 1984. It illustrates the excessive measure of interaction among crew idea and geometry. The reader will enjoy the very concise remedies of riemannian and pseudo-riemannian manifolds and their curvatures, of the illustration conception of finite teams, and of symptoms of modern development in discrete subgroups of Lie teams.

12. Prove that D is homeomorphic to the hemisphere of the dimension σk+1 − k − 1. Thus D is a closed cell of dimension σk+1 −k −1. 2. We define the map f : E(σ1 , . . , σk ) × D −→ E(σ1 , . . , σk , σk+1 ) by the formula f ((v1 , . . , vk ), u) = (v1 , . . , vk , T u) where T is given by (13). We notice that vi , T u = T ǫi , T u = ǫi , u = 0, i = 1, . . , k, and T u, T u = u, u = 1 by definition of T and since T ∈ O(n). 13. Recall that σk < σk+1 . Prove that T u ∈ H σk+1 if u ∈ D .

Then there exists a cell map g : X −→ Y such that g|A = f |A and, moreover, f ∼ g rel A. First of all, we should explain the notation f ∼ g rel A which we are using. Assume that we are given two maps f, g : X −→ Y such that f |A = g|A . A notation f ∼ g rel A means that there exists a homotopy ht : X −→ Y such that ht (a) does not depend on t for any a ∈ A. Certainly f ∼ g rel A implies f ∼ g , but f ∼ g does not imply f ∼ g rel A. 3. Give an example of a map f : [0, 1] −→ S 1 which is homotopic to a constant map, and, at the same time f is not homotopic to a constant map relatively to A = {0}∪{1} ⊂ I.

Is ) as above. The Young tableaus were invented in the representation theory of the symmetric group Sn . This is not an accident, it turns out that there is a deep relationship between the Grasmannian manifolds and the representation theory of the symmetric groups.

We call a pair (of topological spaces) (X, A) a Borsuk pair, if for any map F : X −→ Y a homotopy ft : A −→ Y , 0 ≤ t ≤ 1, such that f0 = F |A may be extended up to homotopy Ft : X −→ Y , 0 ≤ t ≤ 1, such that Ft |A = ft and F0 = F .
