The aim of those notes is to offer a geometric therapy of generalized homology and cohomology theories. The principal proposal is that of a 'mock bundle', that's the geometric cocycle of a basic cobordism conception, and the most new result's that any homology concept is a generalized bordism conception. The booklet will curiosity mathematicians operating in either piecewise linear and algebraic topology in particular homology conception because it reaches the frontiers of present examine within the subject. The ebook can be appropriate to be used as a graduate path in homology idea.

Read e-book online Notes on Crystalline Cohomology PDF

Written through Arthur Ogus at the foundation of notes from Pierre Berthelot's seminar on crystalline cohomology at Princeton college within the spring of 1974, this e-book constitutes an off-the-cuff creation to an important department of algebraic geometry. particularly, it offers the fundamental instruments utilized in the research of crystalline cohomology of algebraic types in confident attribute.
