The goal of this course is to provide a basic introduction into singular homology and cohomology and related constructions and applications. There is a sequel, MAT 542, that covers homotopy theory, fibrations, and further more advanced topics in algebraic topology. Another course to consider after MAT 541 is MAT 566, which covers vector bundles, characteristic class, and topology of smooth manifolds.
