Topology interest

  1. Jul 14, 2004 #1
    Hi, I am not sure if this would be the right place to post this but i know that it is a mathematical concept.

    I have read a bit about topology in the latest scientific american, and it really intrigued me. I am fascinated by this idea.

    Therefore i ask if you would kindly point me in the direction of any useful topology sites... ie, any you have come across.

    Thanks a lot K_ :biggrin:

    I had trouble with topology last term because it's so ridiculously counter-intuitive. (I do better with stuff that makes sense) Anyway here's some stuff from good ol Mathworld:

    Was it the article on the Poincaré conjecture? That was really facinating. Can anyone reccomend a good undergradate text in toplogy?

    the standard intro to point-set & algbraic topology is of course Topology by Munkres. I also like the ones by Dugundji & Willard, but those ones are a bit more advanced than the Munkres one.

    yeah the one about Poincare. It was great
