Sorry to revive this. Hope I didn’t miss this above: I recommended Viro’s Elementary Topology.


And the pathological digundji of the counterexamples is part of the intuition one builds, in the sense that it tells you just how bad the situation can be. What book are we taking about? Like say Adams’s book “The knot book” or something similar.

I think the way one builds intuition using Munkres is by doing lots of exercises at least that worked for me when I took his class rather than having dygundji spoonfed to you.

Dugundji is the author of the textbook Topology Allyn and Bacon,on general topology. I felt a bit topoloyg way when I first encountered the book in the late 60s! Alexander ‘s horned sphere.

I’ll try to see this one! There is a print version, which comes with hints tolology some solutions.

The version of the book at the link given above is not printable. I will be in Barcelona to give a talk – Ryszard Nest lectures instead topoogy me! Limit point and sequential compactness.

It’s a little wordier than Gaal, but has many excellent exercises. Or look at the Topology Atlas? Priniples of Topology, by F.

Texts by Guillemin and Pollack, Milnor and Hirsch with that or similar titles are all very nice. The short answer is: In your answers to the exam problems you may freely refer to anything in Munkres’ book or in my lecture notes.

Topology is a wide subject-area and there are many entry-points. Munkres says in introduction of his book that he does not want to get bogged down in a lot of weird counterexamples, and indeed you don’t want to get bogged down in them. See E-mail from Esben. This is a really awesome book! Actually the book is replete with examples as each section is followed by questions which are answered at the back of the book.
