Commentary on "Notes on Covering Spaces"

This set of notes was used as a handout in a first course on Lie groups taught at Cornell University in Fall 1981 and Fall 1985.  The notes may be regarded as filling in the details for Section I.11 of Lie Groups Beyond an Introduction, Second Edition, which was published in 2002.  They are based on notes from part of a course taught by Ralph Fox at Princeton University in Fall 1962.
