Contents

• Fundamentals of set-theoretic topology: Open sets, continuous mappings.
• Bases, construction of topological spaces, connectivity, separation properties
• Compactness and metrizability: Central theorems on compactness,
• metrizability conditions
• Homotopy,: homotopy classes and equivalence, mappings of and in spheres
• Coverings: lifting properties, fundamental group

Qualification Goals

The students

• understand basic principles of topological structures and recognize that such structures can be found in many parts of mathematics,
• practice the axiomatic approach and train their abstraction skills,
• develop a deeper understanding of the implications of elementary conditions on a topological space,
• practice mathematical methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification in proofs),
• improve their oral communication skills in the recitation class by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussions.
