Abstract

Coming from algebraic geometry, projective spaces and their Hopf bundles play an important role in homotopy theory, as already seen in Sects.  3.8 and  4.3. The precise knowledge of their cohomology algebra has interesting applications, like the Borsuk-Ulam theorem, continuous multiplications in \({\mathbb R}^m\) and the Hopf invariant, which are presented in Sect. 6.2.
