James Munkres

For a senior undergraduate or first-year graduate-level course in Introduction to Topology. Appropriate for a one-semester course on general and algebraic topology or separate courses treating each topic separately.

James Munkres’s Topology is designed to provide instructors with a convenient single-text resource for bridging general and algebraic topology courses. Two separate sections are suitable for a one-semester course. They are based on the same set of basic, core topics. Optional, independent topics and applications can be studied and developed in depth depending on course needs and preferences.
