These invariants turn out to be rather computable, and they allow for some immediate geometric applications. We will establish some key properties of these homology groups like the homotopy-invariance and the excision theorem. A convenient variant is provided by singular homology with coefficients - a framework which makes necessary a short discussion of basic homological algebra including tensor and torsion products.

For CW complexes, there is also the more combinatorial cellular homology theory. The course culminates in a proof that singular homology and cellular homology agree on CW complexes. This allows for more explicit calculations in examples of interest e. In the sequel Algebraic Topology II we discuss a bit more advanced subjects like cohomology theory.

You are not allowed to use notes. The regular homework assignments can either be handed in by email or in person before class. Homework is optional can only increase your final grade. The retake exam is on Wed Feb 27, in Ruppert It is optional and may be used to replace your exam grade in the above formula, if your home institution agrees.
Prerequisites - Background in point-set topology: topological spaces, continuous maps, compactness, quotients and products, along the lines of these notes by A. Hatcher and maybe a first encounter with the fundamental group.

Additional practice exercises Lecture 9 by Jorge. The Hawaiian earring has a non-free fundamental group, see an old paper by Bart de Smit Leiden. Finite topological spaces are surprisingly rich and complicated. There are 9 non-equivalent topologies on the 3-element set.
As the number of elements grows, so does the number of topologies. Roughly speaking they are Abelian groups measuring in how many distinct ways an n sphere fits into an m sphere. The answer is a baffling mix of order and chaos. Much remains to be done!
