Simplicial Objects in Algebraic Topology by J. Peter May

Book Description

Since it was first published in 1967, Simplicial Objects in Algebraic Topology has been the standard reference for the theory of simplicial sets and their relationship to the homotopy theory of topological spaces. J. Peter May gives a lucid account of the basic homotopy theory of simplicial sets (discrete analogs of topological spaces) which have played a central role in algebraic topology ever since their introduction in the late 1940s. "Simplicial Objects in Algebraic Topology presents much of the elementary material of algebraic topology from the semi-simplicial viewpoint. It should prove very valuable to anyone wishing to learn semi-simplicial topology. [May] has included detailed proofs, and he has succeeded very well in the task of organizing a large body of previously scattered material."--Mathematical Review

More Concise Algebraic Topology by J. Peter May More Concise Algebraic Topology, Hardback (January 2012)

With firm foundations dating only from the 1950s, algebraic topology is a relatively young area of mathematics. This title addresses the course material, such as fundamental groups, covering spaces, the basics of homotopy theory, and homology and cohomology. It covers topics that are useful for algebraic topologists.
