Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I do realize that my previous thread on CW complexes was unanswered, so perhaps I am posting my questions to wrong section of this forum. If so, please direct me to the right forum. Otherwise, I am having some problems understanding the smash product of two topological spaces. If anyone understands it well, could you give me a concrete (nontrivial) example of how a smash product works? (Wikipedia and Hatcher, which are my two primary sources of topology both do not seem to have a satisfactory example).

Thanks,

A
