MT 831: Algebraic topology and low-dimensional topology

Fall 2014

Time/Location: MW 10-11:15, Fulton 210
Instructor: Eli Grigsby
Office hours: By appointment (or poke your head in), Carney 357

Course description: This will be something of a second-semester algebraic topology course, but focused on those topics that I have personally found indispensable. Since I am a low-dimensional topologist, I will try my best to show how the topics relate to questions about low-dimensional (3- and 4-) manifolds by inserting examples/applications that have been relevant to my own research. Here is what I hope to cover.
