Homological Algebra

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The relevance of this chapter comes from the fact that it encompasses several very interesting mathematical concepts. Its main goal is to explain the ideas behind homological algebra. In some sense homological algebra represents the analogue of writing algebraic equations for homology groups.
