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.

Course content

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.

Learning outcome

Advanced methods of Algebraic Topology.

Admission to the course

PhD candidates from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.

MAT4530 – Algebraic Topology I and MAT4540 – Algebraic Topology II. It may be an advantage to have taken MAT4520 – Manifolds, MAT2200 – Groups, Rings and Fields or MAT4200 – Commutative Algebra.

Teaching

4 hours of lectures/exercises per week.

Upon the attendance of three or fewer students, the lecturer may, in conjunction with the Head of Teaching, change the course to self-study with supervision.

Examination

Final oral exam which counts 100 % towards the final grade.
