Learning outcome

This course will enable the participants to work with basic topological concepts and methods.  At the end of the course, the students are expected to have attained:


Knowledge:

  • understand and assimluate the concepts and methods of the main course topics including basic definitions and theorems
  • understand secondary topics covered in the specific course

 

Skills:

  • determine properties of a topological space such as Hausdorffness, countability, (path) connectedness, (local) compactness
  • construct new spaces as subspaces, quotient spaces and product spaces of known ones

 

Competences:

  • analyze concrete topological spaces using acquired knowledge and skills
  • relate the theory of topological spaces and continuous maps to specific settings in past and future math courses

 

5 hours of lectures and 3 hours of exercises per week for 7 weeks.
