MAT9580 – Algebraic Topology III
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
Changes in the course due to coronavirus
As a general rule, exams at the MN Faculty will during the autumn of 2021 be conducted without physical attendance. For reasons relating to the course content, some courses will have on-campus written examination if the current infection rate makes this possible.
The semester page for your course will be updated with any changes in the form of examination. See also more information about examination at the MN Faculty in 2021.
The course builds on MAT4530 – Algebraic Topology I and MAT4540 – Algebraic Topology II. The content will vary, but can include finer points of unstable or stable homotopy theory, or the interaction of algebraic topology with subjects like geometric topology or algebraic geometry.
Advanced methods of Algebraic Topology.
