Topology: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Richard Earl

Narrator: Bruce Mann

Unabridged: 4 hr 45 min

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Published: 06/16/2020

Genre: Mathematics - Topology

Synopsis

How is a subway map different from other maps? What makes a knot knotted? What makes the Möbius strip one-sided? These are questions of topology, the mathematical study of properties preserved by twisting or stretching objects. In the 20th century topology became as broad and fundamental as algebra and geometry, with important implications for science, especially physics. In this Very Short Introduction, Richard Earl gives a sense of the more visual elements of topology (looking at surfaces) as well as covering the formal definition of continuity. Considering some of the eye-opening examples that led mathematicians to recognize a need for studying topology, he pays homage to the historical people, problems, and surprises that have propelled the growth of this field.
