Introduction to piecewise-linear topology by C. P Rourke( Book )

50 editions published between 1970 and 1982 in 5 languages and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first five chapters of this book form an introductory course in piece wise-linear topology in which no assumptions are made other than basic topological notions. This course would be suitable as a second course in topology with a geometric flavour, to follow a first course in point-set topology, andi)erhaps to be given as a final year undergraduate course. The whole book gives an account of handle theory in a piecewise linear setting and could be the basis of a first year postgraduate lecture or reading course. Some results from algebraic topology are needed for handle theory and these are collected in an appendix. In a second appen dix are listed the properties of Whitehead torsion which are used in the s-cobordism theorem. These appendices should enable a reader with only basic knowledge to complete the book. The book is also intended to form an introduction to modern geo metric topology as a research subject, a bibliography of research papers being included. We have omitted acknowledgements and references from the main text and have collected these in a set of "historical notes" to be found after the appendices

The Hauptvermutung book : a collection of papers of the topology of manifolds by Alfred Joseph Casson( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hauptvermutung is the conjecture that any two triangulations of a polyhedron are combinatorially equivalent. This conjecture was formulated at the turn of the century, and until its resolution was a central problem of topology. Initially, it was verified for low-dimensional polyhedra, and it might have been expected that further development of high-dimensional topology would lead to a verification in all dimensions. However, in 1961 Milnor constructed high-dimensional polyhedra with combinatorially inequivalent triangulations, disproving the Hauptvermutung in general. Then, the development of surgery theory led to the disproof of the high-dimensional manifold Hauptvermutung in the late 1960s. Up to now, the published record of the Hauptvermutung has been incomplete. This volume brings together the original papers of Casson and Sullivan (1967), and the `Princeton Notes on the Hauptvermutung' of Armstrong, Rourke and Cooke (1968/1972). They include several results which have become part of mathematical folklore, but of which proofs had never been published. The material is complemented by an introduction on the Hauptvermutung and an account of recent developments in the area. Also, references have been updated wherever possible. Audience: This book will be valuable to all mathematicians interested in the topology of manifolds, geometry, and differential geometry

Orientability( Visual )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you send a lock-face round a Mobius band, then after one circuit, the sense of clockwise reverses to anti-clockwise. In contrast, on the cylinder, you can assign a sense of clockwise of each point which is matched by a travelling clock, no matter what journey it makes. The cylinder is said to be "orientable" and the Mobius band "non-orientable". This programme uses a variety of models and animations to show that every non-orientable surface must contain a Mobius band
