Basic Topology: a review

  • Satya DeoEmail author
Part of the Texts and Readings in Mathematics book series (TRIM, volume 27)


In this chapter, we briefly recall and collect some of the basic definitions and results of point set topology which will be needed later for explaining the concepts of algebraic topology. Important definitions are followed by some quick examples and, if necessary, by some comments. The results are mostly stated without proofs, but occasionally well-known proofs are indicated merely to highlight some important routine arguments.
