THEORY OF COVERING SPACES BY SAUL LUBKIN Introduction. In this paper I study covering spaces in which the base space is an arbitrary topological space. No use is made of arcs and no assumptions of a global or local nature are required. In consequence, the fundamental group ir(X, Xo) which we obtain fre-.

Proposition (fundamental group criterion for existence of lifting): Let p: Z → Y {\displaystyle p:Z\to Y} be a covering and let f: X → Y {\displaystyle f:X\to Y} be a continuous function, where X {\displaystyle X} is path-connected and strongly locally connected. The Fundamental Group and Covering Spaces In the first seven chapters we have dealt with point-set topology. This chapter pro-vides an introduction to algebraic topology. Algebraic topology may be regarded as the study of topological spaces and continuous functions by means of algebraic objects such as groups and homomorphisms.

This innovative text culminates with topics from geometric and algebraic topology (the Classification Theorem for Surfaces and the fundamental. We motivate the notion of covering spaces and give the definition and some basic examples. For notes, see here: ~ucahjde/tg/ht.

An accomplished example of the algebraic topologist's dream come true, covering spaces are a geometric (that is, topological) structure that is completely characterized by its algebraic counterpart.

The author provides several illustrative examples that touch upon different areas of mathematics, but in keeping with the book's introductory aim, they are all quite elementary. The elementary character of fundamental groups and covering spaces are presented as suitable for introducing algebraic topology.

The two topics are treated in separate sections. The focus is on the use of algebraic invariants in topological problems.

En topologie, les notions du groupe fondamental et du revêtement universel sont lieés l’une à l’autre. En suivant l’exemple topologique, on. In Homotopy Theory we defined the fundamental group of a topological space as the group of equivalence classes of “loops” on the space.

In this post, we discuss the fundamental group from another point of view, this time making use of the concept of covering doing so, we will uncover some interesting analogies with the theory of Galois groups (see Galois Groups).
