This text presents the fundamental principles of topology rigorously but not abstractly. It emphasizes the geometric nature of the subject and the applications of topological ideas to geometry and mathematical analysis. The usual topics of point-set topology, including metric spaces, general topological spaces, continuity, topological equivalence, basis, sub-basis, connectedness , compactness, separation properties, metrization, subspaces, product spaces, and quotient spaces are treated in this text. Most of the factual information about topology presented in this text is stated in the theorems and illustrated in the accompanying examples, figures and exercises. This book contains many exercises of varying degrees of difficulty. The notation used in this text is reasonably standard; a list of symbols with definitions appears on the front end-sheets. This text is designed for a one-semester introduction to topology at the undergraduate and beginning graduate levels. It is accessible to junior mathematics majors who have studied multivariable calculus.

PRINCIPLES OF TOPOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY by KURT LEWIN. Originally published in 1936. PREFACE by DR. WOLFGANG KOHLER Swarthmore College Swarthmore: DEAR KOHLER This book is the result of a very slow growth. I remember the moment when more than ten years ago it occurred to me that the figures on the blackboard which were to illustrate some problems for a group in psychology might after all be not merely illustrations but representations of real concepts. Much interested in the theory of science, I had already in 1912 as a student defended the thesis against a then fully accepted philo sophical dictum that psychology, dealing with manifolds of coexist ing facts, would be finally forced to use not only the concept of time but that of space too. Knowing something of the general theory of point sets, I felt vaguely that the young mathematical discipline topology might be of some help in making psychology a real science. I began studying topology and making use of its concepts, which soon appear

Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other pans and for other sciences. Applying a simple rewriting rule to the quote on the right above one finds such statements as: 'One service topology has rendered mathematical physics .. .'; 'One service logic has rendered com puter science .. .'; 'One service category theory has rendered mathematics .. .'.

The book presents surveys describing recent developments in most of the primary subfields of General Topology, and its applications to Algebra and Analysis during the last decade, following the previous editions (North Holland, 1992 and 2002). The book was prepared in connection with the Prague Topological Symposium, held in 2011. During the last 10 years the focus in General Topology changed and therefore the selection of topics differs from that chosen in 2002. The following areas experienced significant developments: Fractals, Coarse Geometry/Topology, Dimension Theory, Set Theoretic Topology and Dynamical Systems.

Students must prove all of the theorems in this undergraduate-level text, which features extensive outlines to assist in study and comprehension. Thorough and well-written, the treatment provides sufficient material for a one-year undergraduate course. The logical presentation anticipates students' questions, and complete definitions and expositions of topics relate new concepts to previously discussed subjects. Most of the material focuses on point-set topology with the exception of the last chapter. Topics include sets and functions, infinite sets and transfinite numbers, topological spaces and basic concepts, product spaces, connectivity, and compactness. Additional subjects include separation axioms, complete spaces, and homotopy and the fundamental group. Numerous hints and figures illuminate the text.
