To get an idea you can look at the Table of Contents and the Preface Printed Version The book was published by Cambridge University Press in 2002 in both paperback and hardback editions, but only the paperback version is currently available (ISBN 0-521-79540-0). This is now in a seventh printing. Each printing contains corrections of various minor errors not yet weeded out from the earlier printings see farther down this page for a list of corrections. I have tried very hard to keep the price of the paperback version as low as possible, but it is gradually creeping upward and is now $34 in the US.

edit The method of algebraic invariants
The goal is to take topological spaces and further categorize or classify them. An older name for the subject was combinatorial topology , implying an emphasis on how a space X was constructed from simpler ones (the modern standard tool for such construction is the CW-complex ). The basic method now applied in algebraic topology is to investigate spaces via algebraic invariants, by mapping them, for example, to groups which have a great deal of manageable structure in a way that respects the relation of homeomorphism of spaces. This allows one to recast statements about topological spaces into statements about groups, which are often easier to prove. Two major ways in which this can be done are through fundamental groups , or more generally homotopy theory , and through homology and cohomology groups. The fundamental groups give us basic information about the structure of a topological space, but they are often

Algebraic Topology Algebraic topology is the study of intrinsic qualitative aspects of spatial objects (e.g., surfaces spheres tori circles ... links , configuration spaces, etc.) that remain invariant under both-directions continuous one-to-one homeomorphic ) transformations. The discipline of algebraic topology is popularly known as "rubber-sheet geometry" and can also be viewed as the study of disconnectivities . Algebraic topology has a great deal of mathematical machinery for studying different kinds of hole structures, and it gets the prefix "algebraic" since many hole structures are represented best by algebraic objects like groups and rings Algebraic topology originated with combinatorial topology , but went beyond it probably for the first time in the 1930s when was developed. A technical way of saying this is that algebraic topology is concerned with functors from the topological category of groups and homomorphisms . Here, the

55: Algebraic topology
Algebraic topology is the study of algebraic objects attached to topological spaces; the algebraic invariants reflect some of the topological structure of the spaces. The use of these algebraic tools calls attention to some types of topological spaces which are well modeled by the algebra; fiber bundles and related spaces are included here, while complexes (CW-, simplicial-, ...) are treated in section 57. Finally, the use of the algebraic tools also calls attention to the aspects of a topological space which are well modeled by the algebra; this gives rise to homotopy theory. The algebraic tools used in topology include various (co)homology theories, homotopy groups, and groups of maps. These in turn have necessitated the development of more complex algebraic tools such as derived functors and spectral sequences; the machinery (mostly derived from homological algebra) is powerful if rather daunting. In all cases, the "naturality" of the construction implies that a map between spaces induces a map between the groups. Thus one can show that no maps of some sort can exist between two spaces (e.g. homeomorphisms) since no corresponding group homomorphisms can exists. That is, the groups and homomorphisms offer an algebraic "obstruction" to the existence of maps. Classic applications include the nonexistence of retractions of disks to their boundary and, as a consequence, the Brouwer Fixed-Point Theorem. (Obstruction theory is, more generally, the creation of algebraic invariants whose vanishing is necessary for the existence of certain topological maps. For example a function defined on a subspace Y of a space X defines an element of a homology group; that element is zero iff the function may be extended to all of X.)

6. What Is Algebraic Topology?
Introductory essay by Joe Neisendorfer, University of Rochester.
WHAT IS ALGEBRAIC TOPOLOGY? THE BEGINNINGS OF ALGEBRAIC TOPOLOGY Algebraic topology is a twentieth century field of mathematics that can trace its origins and connections back to the ancient beginnings of mathematics. For example, if you want to determine the number of possible regular solids, you use something called the Euler characteristic which was originally invented to study a problem in graph theory called the Seven Bridges of Konigsberg. Can you cross the seven bridges without retracing your steps? No and the Euler characteristic tells you so. Later, Gauss defined the so-called linking number, a precise invariant which tells you whether two circles are linked. It is called an invariant because it remains the same even if we continuously deform the geometric object. Gauss also found a relationship between the total curvature of a surface and the Euler characteristic. All of these ideas are bound together by the central idea that continuous geometric phenomena can be understood by the use of discrete invariants. The winding number of a curve illustrates two important principles of algebraic topology. First, it assigns to a geometric odject, the closed curve, a discrete invariant, the winding number which is an integer. Second, when we deform the geometric object, the winding number does not change, hence, it is called an invariant of deformation or, synomynously, an invariant of homotopy.

    11. Open Problems In Algebraic Topology
    Problems in algebraic topology, listed by Mark Hovey, mathematician at Wesleyan University.
    Mark Hovey's Algebraic Topology Problem List
    This list of problems is designed as a resource for algebraic topologists. The problems are not guaranteed to be good in any wayI just sat down and wrote them all in a couple of days. Some of them are no doubt out of reach, and some are probably even worseuninteresting. I ask that anybody who gets anywhere on any of these problems, has some new problems to add, or has corrections to any of them, please keep me informed ( If I mention a name in a problem, it might be good to consult that person before working too hard on the problem. However, even if the problems we work on are internal to algebraic topology, we must strive to express ourselves better. If we expect our papers to be accepted in mathematical journals with a wide audience, such as the Annals, JAMS, or the Inventiones, then we must make sure our introductions are readable by generic good mathematicians. I always think of the French, myselfI want Serre to be able to understand what my paper is about. Another idea is to think of your advisor's advisor, who was probably trained 40 or 50 years ago. Make sure your advisor's advisor can understand your introduction. Another point of view comes from Mike Hopkins, who told me that we must tell a story in the introduction. Don't jump right into the middle of it with "Let E be an E-infinity ring spectrum". That does not help our field.
    Here are the problems:

Ziegler Algebraic topology provides measures for global qualitative features of geometric and combinatorial objects that are stable under deformations, and relatively insensitive to local details. This makes topology into a useful tool for understanding qualitative geometric and combinatorial questions.
    Considerable momentum has developed in recent years towards applications of algebraic topology in various contexts related to data analysis, object recognition, discrete and computational geometry, combinatorics, algorithms, and distributed computing.

    The guiding principle of the book is to use differential forms and in fact the de Rham theory of differential forms as a prototype of all cohomology thus enabling an easier access to the machineries of algebraic topology in the realm of smooth manifolds. The material is structured around four core sections: de Rham theory, the Cech-de Rham complex, spectral sequences, and characteristic classes, and includes also some applications to homotopy theory.
