MATH 362 Topology

General topology studies those properties (such as connectedness and compactness) which are preserved by continuous mappings. A disk and a solid square are topologically equivalent; so are a doughnut and a coffee cup; but a disk is different from a doughnut. This course enables you to construct your own proofs and counterexamples while getting to know the basic concepts behind modern mathematics.
