Can someone explain the concept of Quotient topology. I tried to read it from a book on topology by author "James Munkres" . It was okay but I did not get a feel of what he was trying to do.. He talks about cutting and pasting elements. I kind of got lost in that.. If someone could give me a physical picture, it would be great.. I beleive this is an important concept. Looking forward to your replies.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
