Course objectives
The course will provide the students with the basic knowledge of general topology.
  • 1. Topological spaces (topology, basis, open and closed sets, interior, exterior and boundary of a set, limit points and closure, dense set)
    2. Euclidean topology (definition and basic properties)
    3. Continuous mappings, homeomorphisms (examples, topological invariants)
    4. Metric spaces (distance function, equivalent metric spaces, sequences in metric spaces, complete metric space)
    5. Compactness and connectedness (Heine-Borel theorem, Tychonoff theorem)
    6. Topological constructions (product topology, subspace topology, quotient topology)
