### MATH 5311: Introduction to Geometry and Topology II

**Description:** This course is offered either as an introduction to algebraic topology or differential topology. Differential topology: review of topology; smooth manifolds; vector fields, tangent and cotangent bundles; submersions, immersions and embeddings, submanifolds; Lie groups; differential forms, orientations, integration on manifolds; De Rham cohomolgy, singular cohomology and de Rham theorem; other topics in geometry at the choice of the instructor (e.g. intrinsic Riemannian geometry of surfaces). Algebraic topology: simplical homology, singular homology; Eilenberg-Steenrod axioms; Mayer-Vietoris sequences; CW-homology; cohomology; cup products; Hom and Tensor products; Ext and Tor; the Universal Coefficient Theorems; Cech cohomology and Steenrod homology; Poincare, Alexander, Lefschetz, Alexander-Pontryagin dualities. With a change of content, this course is repeatable to a maximum of six credits.

**Prerequisites:** MATH 5310.

**Credits:** 3
