M. Gelfand. The first English translation, done many decades ago, remains very much in demand, although it has been long out-of-print and is difficult to obtain. Therefore, this updated English edition will be much welcomed by the mathematical community. Distinctive features of this book include: a concise but fully rigorous presentation, supplemented by a plethora of illustrations of a high technical and artistic caliber; a huge number of nontrivial examples and computations done in detail; a deeper and broader treatment of topics in comparison to most beginning books on algebraic topology; an extensive, and very concrete, treatment of the machinery of spectral sequences. The second edition contains an entirely new chapter on K-theory and the Riemann-Roch theorem (after Hirzebruch and Grothendieck).Number of Illustrations and Tables210 b/w illustrationsTopicsCategory Theory, Homological AlgebraK-TheoryAlgebraic TopologyClick Here to Buy the Hardcover from SpringerPurchase a Premium account from Download Link for Multiple/High Speed And Support :)Click Here for More books
