This can be the 1st systematic and self-contained textbook on homotopy tools within the research of periodic issues of a map. a contemporary exposition of the classical topological fixed-point thought with an entire set of all of the priceless notions in addition to new proofs of the Lefschetz-Hopf and Wecken theorems are included.Periodic issues are studied by using Lefschetz numbers of iterations of a map and Nielsen-Jiang periodic numbers concerning the Nielsen numbers of iterations of this map. Wecken theorem for periodic issues is then mentioned within the moment half the e-book and several other effects at the homotopy minimum sessions are given as functions, e.g. a homotopy model of the Åarkovsky theorem, a dynamics of equivariant maps, and a relation to the topological entropy. scholars and researchers in mounted aspect thought, dynamical platforms, and algebraic topology will locate this article necessary.

Ce cours de topologie a été dispensé en licence à l'Université de Rennes 1 de 1999 à 2002. Toutes les constructions 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.

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

Homologic deﬁnition of the degree. Now we are in a position to present the homologic deﬁnition of the degree of a d-compact map. Let E denote n-dimensional Euclidean space, U ⊂ E its open subset. Let us ﬁx an orientation of the space E by ﬁxing a generator z0 ∈ Hn (E, E \ 0). Let f: U → E be a d-compact map. Let zf −1 (0) ∈ Hn (U , U \ f −1 (0)) = Hn (E, E \ f −1 (0)) denote the orientation along the compact set f −1 (0). The map f induces the homomorphism f∗ : Hn (U , U \ f −1 (0)) → Hn (E, E \ 0) = Z.

The diagram Hn (V , V \ f −1 (0)) f∗ = i∗ Hn (U , U \ f −1 (0)) is commutative. / Hn (E, E \ 0) f∗ / Hn (E, E \ 0) 22 CHAPTER II. 19) Lemma (Units). Let i: U → E be the inclusion. Then deg (i) = 1 if 0 ∈ U , 0 if 0 ∈ /U . Proof. We notice that the composition i i ∗ ∗ Hn (E, E \ 0) ←− Hn (U , U \ 0) −→ Hn (E, E \ 0) is the identity map (by excision) if 0 ∈ U and is zero if 0 ∈ /U since then Hn (U , U \ 0) = 0 . 20) Lemma (Additivity). If U 1 , U 2 ⊂ U are open subsets such that the restrictions f|U1 , f|U2 are compactly ﬁxed and U 1 ∩ U 2 is disjoint from f −1 (0), then deg (f) = deg (f|U1 ) + deg (f|U2 ).

21) Lemma (Homotopy Invariance). Let U ⊂ E be an open subset and let F : U × I → E be a d-compact map. Then deg (f0 ) = deg (f1 ), where ft = F ( · , t) for 0 ≤ t ≤ 1. Proof. Since F −1 (0) is compact, p1 (F −1 (0)) ⊂ U is also compact, where p1 : U × I → U is the projection. Now we have a commutative diagram Hn (U , U \ p1 F −1 (0)) = Hn ((U , U \ p1 F −1 (0)) × I) O = Hn (U , U \ p1 F −1 (0)) / Hn (U , U \ f −1 (0)) 0 f0∗ = i0∗ / Hn (U × I, U × I \ F −1 (0)) O F∗ / Hn (E, E \ 0) O = ii∗ / Hn (U , U \ f −1 (0)) 1 / Hn (E, E \ 0) f1∗ / Hn (E, E \ 0) It remains to notice that i0∗ (zf −1 (0) ) = i1∗ (zf −1 (0) ) = j∗ (zp1 F −1 (0)) ∈ Hn (U × I, 0 1 U × I \ F −1 (0)), where j: (U , U \ p1 F −1 (0)) × I) → (U × I, U × I \ F −1 (0)) is the inclusion and zp1 F −1 (0) ∈ Hm (U , U \ p1 F −1 (0)) = Hm ((U , U \ p1 F −1 (0)) × I).
